EuroFinance Geneva last week was full of new products, fascinating presentations, great dinners and parties. But there were two sights that stood out.
Peter Storgaard, THE bank cash management gentleman, has retired from Danske Bank. Peter’s softly spoken advice, sanity, kindness and support have served Dankse and many friends very well. His final position at Danske was Head of Strategic Customer Initiatives at GateTu, but it was his role in dispensing definitely the best beer and good cheer at EuroFinance’s conferences that so many of us will remember.

Thank you Peter and good luck.
