As part of its significant restructuring , he was given additional responsibilities as chief operating officer for the wholesale and insurance arms of the bank as well as its support functions. The restructuring was successful and in 2004 the bank was sold at a significant gain to shareholders to Santander.


Hester bought the 350-acre Broughton Grange estate in Oxfordshire in 1992.

Hester married Canadian-born Barbara Abt in 1991, and they had two children together. They met when both were working for Credit Suisse. They separated and divorced in 2010.
