Gadhia replaces vice-chair of media company RTL Group  Martin Taylor and starts her role in time for the committee’s second quarter round of meetings this year.

She will serve on the committee with current Banking Standards Board chairwoman Colette Bowe, who was also appointed today.

Gadhia was chief executive of Virgin Money from 2007 to 2018 until it merged with CYBG.

Bank of England governor Mark Carney says: “Jayne-Anne brings deep and relevant experience in retail banking and her successful business career.

“We also greatly look forward to her contributions to the work of the committee.”
