the summer HSBC relocated its Commercial Service and Sales Centre from various
city centre sites to De Montfort Street, just round the corner from the RAC.
Steven Pegg, Development Officer at the RAC, said: "HSBC has branded itself
as 'The World's Local Bank'. Through their involvement with the RAC and their
support for this exciting new initiative, we greatly look forward to having them
as our neighbours and to working closely with them."
Curtis, Head of Customer Services at HSBC, spoke of looking forward to a
"profitable partnership" for both the Richard Attenborough Centre and
HSBC over the next three years. Communications Manager Andy Milner added,
"High quality people are at the heart of our business, especially here in
Leicester where we are one of the largest employers. HSBC's sponsorship of
concerts at the Richard Attenborough Centre will be an ideal way for the bank to
put back into the community locally while enjoying an ongoing association with
quality and talent."
