West Wales Corporate Banker Set to Retire After 36 Years in Banking

Ken joined Handelsbanken in Swansea eight years ago, after a 28 year career with a high street bank. The bank has four South Wales based branches at Cardiff, Bridgend, Newport and Swansea as well as a further 203 branches across the rest of the UK. Ken’s retirement will begin on the 29th July.  3Z8A9041a

‘’We wish him every success and will certainly be keeping in touch. Stepping into Ken’s shoes is another experienced banker, Martin Griffiths, who is looking forward to delivering the same high level of service that our customers are accustomed to’’ said Steve Smith, Branch Manager at Handelsbanken Swansea.

Ken added,

“I’ve had a great time at Handelsbanken, it’s been rewarding and refreshing to work in a banking environment that is so very different to the traditional high street banks. Relationships with customers are key and that is what makes Handelsbanken so special. I intend to keep in close contact with all my former colleagues and wish them well for the future.”
