The Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Sajid Javid MP said:

I am delighted that Sue Langley has agreed to lead the Financial Services Investment Organisation. Her leadership and experience make Sue the right person to deliver a step change in our promotion of the UK’s world class financial sector to inward investors.

Our expertise in financial services is already recognised by many of our international partners, but we can do more to build upon this success, and in so doing help to sustain our economic recovery and ensure we compete in the global race.

The new CEO of the Financial Services Investment Organisation Sue Langley said:

The financial services sector has been my passion for many years; I understand the challenges of the task ahead and relish the opportunity to make a difference in such an important sector for the UK economy. I will be collaborating with industry bodies to promote why the UK continues to be the location of choice for the financial services sector.
