Close appoints Graham Sheward as managing director for banking businesses


The international division of Close has appointed Graham Sheward as managing director for its banking businesses in Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Sheward has over 25 years’ banking experience gained in the UK and offshore. 

Joining Close from Zurich Bank International as the managing director, and previously head of the NatWest Expatriate Service in the Isle of Man, Sheward has a successful track record in delivering business growth.

His experience extends to his position as an executive council member for the banking industry body, the Isle of Man Banker’s Association, for which he has served for four consecutive years. 

Andrew Henton, head of international businesses for Close, says: “I am delighted to have Graham on board. His appointment underlies commitment to our strategic plans regarding the development of our banking operations and competitive position.”
Sheward adds: “I will be looking to grow the balance sheet of the bank strongly in coming years and the conservative reputation of Close, its strong credit rating and trusted brand is an ideal starting point.”
Close provides international banking services for private and corporate clients around the world.
