The UK based savings bank, RCI Bank, today announces that Peter McEvoy has been appointed as Chief Financial Officer and joins the Executive Committee of RCI Bank.
Based at RCI Bank’s head office in Watford, McEvoy will be instrumental in maintaining the bank’s strong growth in the UK, working closely with RCI Bank’s senior management team and reporting into its Chief Executive Officer, Steve Gowler.
Peter’s track record of building and advising businesses in the professional services sector include five years setting up and launching RCI Banque’s branch in Ireland from 2011, and beforehand eight years at PwC working across the audit, business advisory and management consulting departments, on a variety of engagements for a mix of clients including multinationals and financial institutions. He is also a qualified Chartered Accountant.
Peter replaces Alice Altemaire, who served as Chief Financial Officer since RCI Bank's launch last year. Altemaire has since taken up the role of Global Vice President for Accounting and Performance at RCI Banque’s offices in Paris.

RCI Bank is an ideal fit given its customer focussed business strategy and outlook. I very much look forward to working with my new colleagues and to build on RCI Bank’s successes since its launch last year.”
