Former managing director of RBC Royal Bank Jamaica, Now Caribbean Point Man In Canada

Posted by Shanelle Weir on July 14, 2014

Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) confirmed Friday that Roger Cogle, former head of its Jamaica operation, has been appointed the new Head, Business and Client Strategies for RBC Caribbean Banking and has repatriated to Toronto, Canada.

"In this new role, Roger will continue to contribute to RBC in the Caribbean through the development of client and product strategies, and support of key channel strategies for the bank across the Caribbeanregion," the bank said in a prepared response provided to Sunday Business.

The position took effect on July 1.

Cogle was managing director of RBC Royal Bank Jamaica prior to and during the transition of ownership to Sagicor Group Jamaica, which bought the operation for $9.5 billion. The operation was merged with Sagicor Bank Jamaica and the expanded group was launched on June 30.

"In early 2014, when RBC senior management considered Sagicor's interest in RBC Jamaica, Roger was asked to carry on and lead the team," said Kirk Dudtschak, Royal Bank's president of Caribbean Banking.

"He played a key leadership role in the effective transition of the bank during the recently concluded acquisition that created Sagicor Bank, the newest bank in Jamaica."

Cogle had worked with RBC Royal Bank Jamaica since March 2012, but has two decades of experience in banking - spanning retail and small business banking, commercial banking, portfolio management, risk management, business intelligence, marketing, process re-engineering and sales and service management.

"Over the past two years, I have been fortunate to work with some of the best talent in Jamaica and across the region, and I look forward to continuing to work with the Caribbean Banking team," he said Friday.

It is his second tour of duty in Canada; the first, however, happened when he was working for Scotiabank Jamaica.
