Bailed-Out Cypriot Bank CEO Quitting

NICOSIA — The largest bank in bailed-out Cyprus says its top executive will leave his job in four months because of personal reasons and that he intends to move back to his native Ireland.

In a statement April 21, Bank of Cyprus said John Patrick Hourican has a contractual notice period of four months but remains at the disposal of the bank’s board.

Hourican, a former Royal Bank of Scotland executive, took the job in October, 2013 just as the bank was trying to stay on its feet in the wake of a multi-billion euro rescue deal for Eurozone member Cyprus.

Hourican told staff in an internal message obtained by The Associated Press that he’s proud to have helped navigate the lender back to stability and wants to spend time with his family.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
