NatWest Group chief executive Derek Wanless has been elected president of the Chartered Institute of Bankers, succeeding outgoing president Mike Blackburn.
CIB chief executive Gavin Shreeve says: "Over the last few years the institute has revolutionised the way it does business. It has shown that it is able to break with tradition, where it needs to be going boldly into new areas such as the provision of education and training for investment and mortgage advisers."
"We welcome the appointment of Derek Wanless as President of the institute, to lead us in continuing this process of change. He has a long involvement with education having worked with David Blunkett on a number of key educational committees."
