City & Corporate: Coutts in top comms hire

RBS Coutts, the international private banking arm of RBS, has appointed former Citigroup comms chief Susan Tether as director of corporate comms, PR and activation.

She is a former head of corporate affairs and marketing for Citi Private Bank and is currently senior vice-president for corporate comms across the EMEA region at Macquarie Bank.

Tether is set to join Coutts in September, reporting to Ian Ewart who joined the executive committee earlier this year.

In the newly created role, Tether will be responsible for shaping and implementing the comms agenda across all regions in which Coutts operates, to support the business in its growth priorities.

A spokeswoman said: 'This appointment further confirms chief executive Rory Tapner's vision of building a marketing-led new Coutts.'
