Description

Thursday 30 March 2.15pm - 4.45pm Followed by drinks

Sir George Mathewson, Group Chairman and Sir Fred Goodwin, Group Chief Executive, over 3250 staff, and 300 guests including politicians, Government representatives, customers and charity partners, welcomed Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh to RBS Gogarburn, headquarters of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, to officially open the campus on September 14th 2005.
Commenting on the opening, Sir George Mathewson, Chairman said: "It is perhaps inevitable on an occasion like this that much of the focus is on this building. However, I would not want that to obscure the fact that it is the people who work here and indeed our staff across the Group, who have helped RBS achieve its success.”
