AMSTERDAM – The financial director of ABN Amro, Hugh Scott-Barrett, has resigned and will leave the company as of 1 August in light of the changes that are to be expected at ABN Amro.

Scott-Barrett has served as financial director for just over a year. He reportedly was not willing to accept the new position offered him if the proposed merger with Barclays goes ahead.

"Given the changes expected surrounding ABN Amro this is a good time for me to look to my future and new opportunities in my career," Scott-Barrett said.

Scott-Barrett will be succeeded by Huibert Boumeester, an executive board member at the bank since early 2006. Boumeester, one of the architects of the deal with Barclays, has worked for ABN Amro since 1987 in a variety of functions throughout Europe and Asia.
