HSBC Celebrates Customer’s 100th Birthday

August 29, 2016

HSBC Bank Bermuda Limited recently marked a milestone for one of their customers, helping Lefroy Brownlow Place to celebrate his 100th birthday.

A spokesperson said, “Loyalty is defined as ‘devotion and faithfulness to a cause, country, group or person.’

“If looking for a local example of someone who epitomizes “what it means to be loyal” as one of their attributes, we need look no further than in the direction of Mr. Lefroy Brownlow Place, who – in addition to being a staunch supporter of The Somerset Cricket Team, has been an equally loyal and popular customer of HSBC Bank Bermuda Limited.”

Renee Bullock-Cann, Head of Retail Banking Wealth Management; Mark Watkinson, CEO HSBC Bank Bermuda Limited; Lefroy Place; Wendy Trott, Manager, St. George’s Branch:

“Over the years, employees at the St. George’s Branch of HSBC have looked forward to Mr. Place’s visits, where they have learned about not just his love for local and international cricket but also his interest in politics; the fact that he gets up early every day; prefers a ‘simple life’ and enjoys taking neighbours out for the occasional drive – facts all the more interesting, considering he recently celebrated his 100th Birthday.”

    Maybe, as a kind gesture, the bank might want to pay interest on Mr. Place’s accounts with no charges. You know, the way banks used to be back in the day!
