Thrissur: South Indian Bank has announced the appointment of Mr Pradeep M Godbole as the additional director of the bank.
A Chartered Accountant with more than 30 years of experience in core sectors like auditing, technology, banking, consulting and management, Godbole has held senior management positions in reputed consulting firm, Ernst & Young, IT organizations Oracle Financial Services Software (OFSS) & Wipro, and banking major Deutsche Bank.
One of the earliest banks in South India, "South Indian Bank" came into being during the Swadeshi movement. The establishment of the bank was the fulfillment of the dreams of a group of enterprising men who joined together at Thrissur, a major town (now known as the Cultural Capital of Kerala), in the erstwhile State of Cochin to provide for the people a safe, efficient and service oriented repository of savings of the community on one hand and to free the business community from the clutches of greedy money lenders on the other by providing need based credit at reasonable rates of interest.
Translating the vision of the founding fathers as its corporate mission, the bank has during its long sojourn been able to project itself as a vibrant, fast growing, service oriented and trend setting financial intermediary.
