CEO of Abbey to speak about managing a large organisation in challenging financial times - now fully booked

Staff, students and the general public are invited to attend a free lecture on campus by António Horta-Osório, Chief Executive of Abbey Bank, on Wednesday 8 October at 6pm. Due to overwhelming demand this lecture is now fully booked.

The lecture is entitled A chief executive’s perspective on managing a large organisation in challenging times.

In light of the recent dramatic changes in the finance sector this should be of considerable interest. Mr Horta-Osorio has impressive finance sector credentials: in addition to his role at Abbey, he is Executive Vice President of Grupo Santander and a member of its "Comité de Dirección".

Previous appointments include Chief Executive Officer of Banco Santander Totta in Portugal and Chief Executive Officer of Banco Santander, Brasil.

He started his career at CitiBank, Portugal, where he was Head of Capital Markets. At the same time, he was an assistant professor at Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

He has also had spells with Goldman Sachs in New York and London.

The lecture will take place in 3WN 2.1 Lecture Theatre.

Coffee will be served before the lecture from 5.30pm
