Hayden-Cater to leave JN Bank

Maureen Hayden-Cater will leave office as managing director of JN Bank, effective November 30.

The bank yesterday announced that following the reorganisation of the JN Group and the conversion of the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) to a commercial bank, Hayden-Cater will be replaced by Curtis Martin, who currently serves as the chief financial officer of the Jamaica National Group, subject to the approval of the Bank of Jamaica.

Hayden-Cater joined JNBS in October 2015 at the height of the restructuring, and is credited with playing a leading role in the transition of the country's largest building society to become one of the top commercial banks.

Oliver Clarke, chairman of the Jamaica National Group, of which JN Bank is a member, expressed appreciation to Hayden-Cater for her leadership during the transition, which culminated with the launch of JN Bank on February 1.

"The Board of Directors of JN Bank and the Jamaica National Group is grateful to Mrs Hayden-Cater for taking the organisation through this phase and historical milestone," said Clarke.

Her planned replacement, Martin, who joined JNBS in July 2013 as assistant general manager, treasury and investments, has had extensive experience in banking, corporate finance, treasury and investment management, serving several leading financial institutions in the private and public sectors for the past three decades.
