John McCormick

John McCormick, a native of the Broad Road, Monaghan town, spent much of his teenage years helping his father deliver eggs and day old chicks from the Elmbank, and latterly Monaghan Poultry Products hatchery, to customers on either side of the border.  Little did he know then that this exposure to demanding clients and delivering a product, alive and on time, prepared him well for what was to unfold in the rest of his career.
John has lived and worked in Dublin, London, Bahrain, New York, San Francisco and Hong Kong.  In a banking career that spanned 35 years (1978-2013) he led a range of businesses across (retail, commercial, wholesale and investment) banking – most recently as the Chairman of Royal Bank of Scotland Group activities in Asia Pacific based in Hong Kong.  At its peak in 2008, he had 28,500 staff, in 17 countries (with a top line revenue of US$3.2 billion).  A trader at heart, John was in the Dublin foreign exchange market when the Irish Punt broke the link with Sterling in April 1979.
Having retired from banking in 2013 John moved back to London and went (back) to university for the first time In 2017, John completed an MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change at Henley Business School.  He jointly founded DMC Coaching LLP in 2014, and now coaches, mentors and facilitates senior leaders & executive teams in the UK, Ireland and Middle East.   John has also become a  Non Executive Director for Lombard Risk Managment plc (2013-2018) and was recently appointed Independent Non Executive Director of the National Bank of Greece.
