Republic Bank (Grenada) Limited on September 13 welcomed President and Chief Executive Officer of Republic Financial Holdings Limited (RFHL), Nigel Baptiste, on his first official visit to Grenada, since assuming office on February 11.
Republic Bank (Grenada) Limited is one of five (5) subsidiaries of RFHL, whose operations Baptiste oversees.
During his 2-day stay, Baptiste met with the Bank’ management team, as well as staff of the various branches.
In commenting on his visit, Baptiste said: “It is a great feeling, meeting and getting re-acquainted with the staff and the customers again.”
Prior to assuming his new position, Baptiste served on the Board of Directors of Republic Bank Grenada, for approximately 10 years, until 2011.
He expressed optimism about the future of Republic Bank, as a major player in the banking sector in Grenada, likening the Bank’s presence to that of a “marathon, and not a sprint”, solidifying the Bank’s commitment to the people of Grenada “for the long run”.
RFHL, in a recent bid, successfully acquired 70% of the shareholding in Grenada, which, Baptiste said further strengthened the company’s commitment to working with the people of Grenada to build a successful society.
