Patrick Hylton

Company: National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited Position: Group Managing Director Industry: Financial Services Country: Jamaica

Patrick Hylton first received local and international acclaim when he was appointed a leading role by the Government in the rehabilitation of the Jamaican financial sector during the mid 1990s. The wealth of his experience in all facets of the financial services industry led to him being named the Managing Director of FINSAC for five (5) years, where he had responsibility for the re-structuring and divestment of intervened financial institutions and the acquired assets. His successful completion of that undertaking culminated in the national award of the Order of Distinction, Commander Class, being bestowed on him by the Prime Minister and Governor General of Jamaica in 2002.

In 2002 he joined the island’s largest commercial bank, National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCB), as the Deputy Group Managing Director, where his responsibilities included the Bank’s investment and insurance subsidiaries. On December 1, 2004 Mr. Hylton was appointed the Group Managing Director of NCB and since then he has led the organization to achieve record growth in profitability.

Complementing his strategic business acumen and an empathetic but firm leadership style, are his academic achievements as an Honours Graduate in Business Administration and as an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers (ACIB) London. He is the President of the Jamaica Bankers Association and in addition to being a Director of NCB, Mr. Hylton is the Chairman of Harmonisation Limited and sits on several boards including the Caribbean Information and Credit Rating Services (CariCRIS).
