As you know, we opened our first branch here in 1970 and from then to now, we continue to invest in technology, processes, and people.”She said the bank has increased the number of off-site ATMs, with new locations in Canaan and Scarborough Esplanade, and more to come in 2023.

Eligon said the the team in Tobago will continue to flourish under White’s leadership.

White said: “I am very happy to join the team and so far, in the six weeks that I’ve been here, Trudy Hamilton (Assistant Manager, Service and Support) and the rest of the team and our customers have warmly welcomed me.

“Although I’ve met some of you already, I look forward to getting to know each of you better in the coming months and I am committed to deepening our relationships here in Tobago.”
