Mark Hucker named CEO of Standard Bank’s PBBI division


Mark Hucker has been appointed chief executive of Standard Bank’s personal and business banking international (PBBI) division.

Comprising offshore businesses in Isle of Man, Jersey and Mauritius, as well as distribution and support in London and Johannesburg, PBBI employs around 300 people and offers banking, investment and trust and fiduciary products.
Hucker’s (pictured) appointment comes after Chris Sweeney moved to take on the role of chairman of the offshore group. The appointment will be in addition to Hucker’s existing roles as chief executive officer of Standard Bank Jersey Limited and head of corporate and business banking. 
Sweeney says: “I am extremely pleased Mark will succeed me as chief executive of PBBI. His appointment is a vote of confidence from the Board in the whole leadership team and our strategy. Mark’s experience, commitment and motivation will ensure consistency and a continued focus on delivery.”
Hucker says: “I have really enjoyed my time at Standard Bank working with a friendly and highly motivated team.  I am very excited about the prospects for our business and the group.  Standard Bank is focused on Africa and the continent offers a huge potential opportunity for PBBI.”
Hucker joined Standard Bank in 2011 as chief risk officer of PBBI. He has over 20 years’ experience in the offshore financial sector. Prior to joining Standard Bank he was managing director of Key Trust, an independent Jersey based trust company.
