BoE Appoints Charlotte Hogg as Deputy Governor

The Bank of England has appointed Charlotte Hogg as its second most powerful executive, in a role that tasks the former financier with keeping a check on Britain’s financial sector.

Hogg has been appointed deputy governor for markets and banking, while consolidating her position at Threadneedle Street by retaining her current role as the central bank’s chief operating officer. She replaces Minouche Shafik, who is becoming director of the London School of Economics.

Announcing her new role at the Bank, chancellor Philip Hammond said: “I’m confident that her exceptional leadership skills and wide-ranging experience make her the right person to take on the position.
