The British Bankers’ Association has announced Morgan Stanley’s Anthony Browne will become its chief executive in September.
He is currently head of Government relations for Morgan Stanley for Europe, Middle East and Africa and was previously an economic and business adviser to London Mayor Boris Johnson.
Browne will replace outgoing chief executive Angela Knight who is joining Energy UK.
He says: “We need to continue to lead on reform, ensuring the banking sector meets the needs and expectations of our customers and shareholders, and can play its pivotal role in returning the UK to economic growth. In a time of change and uncertainty, the BBA has a critically important mission to ensure the banking sector returns to health, remains in Britain, and has the trust of the public and politicians.”
Knight says: “”I am delighted that Anthony is to be the new chief executive of the BBA. He is well known to the staff and many of the members: we are really looking forward to his taking up the role.”
