Marcar most recently served as the CIO of corporate and institutional banking for Royal Bank of Scotland; he previously held leadership positions at J.P. Morgan Chase.
The hiring of Shannon and Marcar follows the recent addition of Michael Grimaldi, the new CIO of the corporate banking and securities and global transaction banking divisions. These new leadership appointments coincide with the bank’s previously announced efforts to expand its technology and operations workforce with 500 new hires to work on its systems and controls, according to the bank’s statement.
