“Sandy Crombie has made an outstanding contribution to the Board of RBS and we have benefitted greatly from his wisdom and experience.  The Board and I will miss Sandy’s presence as a much valued colleague and friend, and he leaves RBS with our very best wishes for the future.

“I am delighted that Robert Gillespie will be building on Sandy’s excellent work as Chairman of the Group Performance & Remuneration Committee, and that Mark Seligman is assuming the pivotal role of Senior Independent Director.
