Gavin Hewitt, CFO, The Bank Of London

The Bank of London has announced the appointment of Gavin Hewitt as Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO) by the end of January 2023. Hewitt will lead all accounting, finance, and corporate treasury for the Group, and contribute to the development of the Group strategy, supporting the delivery of its commercial agenda.

A qualified management accountant with over 20 years of experience within the financial services and banking sector, Hewitt brings extensive knowledge in business performance management, strategy, and financial planning.

Hewitt joins from Silicon Valley Bank, where he held the role of CFO for the UK and Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and was an Executive Director on the UK Board and Management Committee.

Previously Hewitt held CFO roles at HSBC in both its UK and European Commercial Banking divisions and was also Deputy CFO of its UK Retail division. He has also held senior financial roles across several Barclays divisions.

Rebecca Skitt, Co-President & Group Chief Administrative Officer of The Bank of London, said, “Gavin has an excellent track record as a senior financial services executive, and brings substantial experience from across the banking and financial services sectors in both established and new ventures. His experience in driving growth is something we value highly. We are extraordinarily fortunate that an outstanding leader like Gavin has chosen to join us at The Bank of London.”

Gavin Hewitt, Group Chief Financial Officer of The Bank of London, added, “Joining The Bank of London is very exciting, especially at a time when building a scalable platform and sustainable financial performance and resilience will be key to growth. As a CFO, the need for a more efficient, borderless payments infrastructure is clear. I am looking forward to getting started and building a passionate team to support that vision.”
