It has been my great pleasure and privilege to serve as Group Finance Director of Barclays for nearly 6 years now.
While it has undoubtedly been the most eventful period during which anyone could have occupied a role such as mine, I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.
However, I think now is the appropriate time, as we start the implementation of the Transform programme, to begin my retirement from my role on the Board and Executive Committee, and to pass the mantle on to a successor. I shall, of course, continue to give my full commitment to Barclays until he or she is appointed.
