AIB Group plc (the "Company") announces that it has concluded the selection process for Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") and Executive Director, and Dr. Colin Hunt is proposed as the successful candidate. We have commenced the required regulatory fitness and probity assessment process and consultation with the Minister for Finance in Ireland in respect of the proposed appointment.  

Subject to the satisfactory conclusion of the aforementioned processes, Colin Hunt would succeed Bernard Byrne who steps down early next year, as announced on 26 October 2018. An announcement regarding the effective date of the appointment will be made in due course.

The Board has now commenced the required regulatory fitness and probity assessment process and will consult with the Minster for Finance.

Colin is an outstanding executive whom I am looking forward to working with even closer in the future.   We had a number of excellent candidates to choose from and we are delighted that the next proposed leader of AIB has emerged from within our own ranks. This proposed appointment also ensures continuity of the current successful strategy for the Bank".
