Metro Bank has appointed Martyn Atkinson as its chief information officer (CIO).

Craig said: “At Metro Bank, we are constantly improving how we anticipate and meet the needs of our fans.

“As CIO, Martyn will be tasked with delivering a stand-out customer journey, and I can't wait to see what he brings to the role.”

Martyn added: “It's an absolute honour to be appointed as CIO at Metro Bank, which is undoubtedly the best place to be in British banking today.
