Chris’ career journey began with a twist of fate when he joined the banking sector – a path he initially vowed never to tread.
“I said I was never going into banking. That’s one thing I said I wouldn’t do. And I did.
“After university I was accepted onto a graduate recruitment programme at NatWest. The bank only took a certain number of people across the whole country, and it involved two to three days of intense psychometric testing. To be asked to join was a good start to my career, and something I’m proud of achieving.”
Rising through the ranks, he found himself excelling in corporate banking and, eventually, landing a role as a relationship director in real estate, managing a portfolio of property customers.
Little did he know that his interaction with MSP Capital as their bank manager would lead to an exciting opportunity to join the thriving organisation.
