This year marks ten years since I joined Barclays as Group General Counsel. We are starting a new period of the banks development under Antonys leadership.
I wholeheartedly support the direction of travel and have no doubt that great success lies ahead.
While it will be an exciting journey, I believe it also provides an obvious transition point, and one which I have decided to take. I shall be sad to say goodbye to Barclays when the time comes but the bank, and my colleagues, will always have my support and best wishes.
