“The interconnectivity between this agenda, and the opportunities for Barclays and our customers and clients opened up through technological developments, are clear. The creation of this role is designed to ensure we have the appropriate focus on both areas.

“Since joining Barclays in 2011, Shaygan has been instrumental in helping devise and drive technology solutions and operational improvements at Barclays, including leading the introduction of award-winning initiatives such as Barclays Pingit, and I look forward to supporting him in this new challenge.”

Shaygan Kheradpir, Chief Operations and Technology Officer, said:

“I am delighted to have this opportunity to lead our Operations and Technology organisation in delivering world class and innovative processes and systems focused on creating a ‘Go-To’ customer and client experience. This strategic work will be fundamental to Barclays achieving our Transform programme commitments.”
