Ceo designate appointed to the BBA

Angela Knight has been appointed as chief executive officer designate to the British Bankers’ Association and is due to take up the new position during the latter part of 2006.

She is currently chief executive of the Association of Private Client Investment Managers and Stockbrokers.

Ian Mullen, who joined the BBA as chief executive in April 2001, is due to retire early next year. Knight will move up to the role of chief executive as of April 1 2007.

She says: “I am delighted to have been offered this opportunity. My eight years at APCIMS have been very fulfilling and I believe that with the excellent support of all my colleagues, I have achieved a lot in my time as ceo and will be leaving the organisation in a strong position. I am ready for a new challenge and representing the banking industry in the UK – a sector that is immensely competitive and hugely successful, serving customers, business, industry and governments world-wide – certainly meets that requirement. I look forward to joining the BBA later this year.”

BBA president Sir Peter Middleton says: “I am very happy to see a smooth succession being put in place as we lead up to Ian’s retirement in 2007. Ian has been tireless in working on behalf of our members over the last five years, has provided strong leadership, and has successfully led the industry in dealing with the deluge of regulation emanating from Brussels. I am very pleased that Angela Knight will be joining us. She is excellently qualified to take over from Ian when he retires, and we all look forward to her arrival.”
