The Bank of N.T.

Mr. Kopp joins Butterfield from Citizens Financial Group/RBS America where he was most recently Head of Corporate Strategy and Development, with responsibility for the company’s mergers and acquisitions team and other strategic planning initiatives in the US. Mr. Kopp joined Citizens in 1993 as Chief Financial Officer.

Alan Thompson, Butterfield’s President & Chief Executive Officer, commented on Mr. Kopp’s appointment: “I am pleased to welcome Brad to the Butterfield organisation and to Bermuda.  I know his many years of experience in both finance and client-facing business functions in the banking sector will serve him well in his new role.  With a proven track record in financial management and demonstrated leadership skills, Brad will be a great asset to our team.”
