David has a wealth of experience to draw upon. He was appointed Deputy Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group in 2012, previously serving as Chairman of the Board Risk Committee from 2010. He has held a number of senior positions in banking and finance: a main Board Director and CEO for International & Retail Banking at Barclays from 2004 to 2006, as well as serving as a member of the Group Executive Committee at Barclays from 2001 to 2006. David was Chairman of the Managing Board at BAWAG PSK Gruppe, the second largest retail bank in Austria from 2007 to 2009. David has been a member of the Henley Advisory Board for some years and is a great supporter of the Business School.  

Nationwide is the world’s largest building society, as well as the second largest savings provider and a top-three provider of mortgages in the U.K. With some 15 million customers Nationwide has positioned itself as a real and credible alternative to the established banks. Unlike some of its competitors, Nationwide successfully weathered the banking crisis and economic downturn with its reputation intact and emerged in a strong position to meet the challenges facing financial institutions in the years ahead.

The event is free to attend, and open to staff and Henley Finance students. To reserve a place please visit Eventbrite.
