Starling Bank appoints new CEO

Starling Bank appoints Raman Bhatia as Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

In brief:

- He will take over from John Mountain, who has been acting as interim CEO since our founder Anne Boden announced she was stepping back from the role last year.

- Currently leading OVO, but before he was the Head of Digital Bank for HSBC’s Retail Banking and Wealth Management business in the UK and Europe, as well as being a member of its Executive Committee. 

- Raman brings a wealth of consumer tech and fintech expertise to Starling, as he has worked in both scaled, regulated businesses and in entrepreneurial challengers. 

What does this mean?

David Sproul, Chair of Starling Bank, said: “We see significant opportunities for Starling under Raman’s leadership as the economy stabilises, as our truly differentiated offering for personal and small business customers wins market share in the UK, and as our Engine by Starling Software-as-a-Service business secures further international contracts. I want to thank John Mountain for his wise stewardship of Starling these past eight months and am delighted that we will continue to benefit from his expertise at the company.”
