AIB'S acting chief financial officer Paul Stanley is to leave the bank in August to pursue other opportunities.

Mr Stanley first joined AIB in 1980 and was appointed to the position in May 2011.

AIB CEO David Duffy said: "I would like to thank Paul for his commitment to AIB over many years and for the valuable role he played as acting chief financial officer in helping to stabilise the bank in such a challenging period in the company's history."

AIB said it has begun a process of identifying a permanent appointment for the position of chief financial officer and expects this process to conclude in the short term, subject to relevant regulatory approvals.
