RBC Dexia Appoints Cormac Sheedy to Middle East & Africa Role

RBC Dexia Investor Services today announced that it has appointed Cormac Sheedy as Senior Executive Officer for Middle East & Africa to lead the company’s business development drive in the region.

Reporting to Simon Shapland, Managing Director of UK, Ireland and Middle East, He will be based in RBC Dexia’s Dubai office and has over 20 years’ experience in financial services, spending the last eight working in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where he was most recently Head of Sales at SHUAA Capital, a UAE Investment Bank.

RBC Dexia is known for its excellence in client service, and our on-the-ground presence in Dubai is crucial for providing locally-based clients with a full suite of custody, administration and value-added services.
