First Bank has been in finance for four generations and over 100 years now. Their dedicated family history is a proud asset of theirs, with a culture of long-standing family ownership certainly sets First Bank apart from its counterparts in the financial services industry.
Marc Ashworth is the Senior Vice President Chief Information Security Officer for First Bank, a financially solid financial institution with over USD$6.8bn in assets, nearly 70 retail locations, in addition to offering full-service mortgage, wealth management, and business banking services
Ashworth manages four teams: the Networking Support Team; the Information Security Group; Fraud Team, and Physical Security. With the bank now for four and a half years, he has over 30 years in the industry.
He shares his thoughts on what makes a great culture, looking after people and their money and how a family run business differs from the corporate environment.
