Vernon Hill – Metro Bank

Podcast interview with Vernon Hill, Founder & Chairman of Metro Bank UK and Commerce Bank Corp. The Connections Radio Team had the great pleasure and privilege in catching up with Vernon at the head office Metro Bank Store in London, while he was in the UK. You can only be inspired by him and the Metro Bank story – proudly setting up his 5th bank starting from scratch in the UK; first new retail bank in the UK since 1840, and starting in the UK in 2010 with 56 stores to date and 100 planned by 2020.

Vernon quotes from his book ‘Fans! Not Customers’ and confirms how ‘ no one wants a me too anything!’ when setting up the business model. He firmly insists that ‘ Culture in a business has no meaning unless you have a model to match it!’ . You can understand how he has ‘ re-invented what a bank does and how to do it!’
