British Business Bank Hires New Risk Officer

The British Business Bank has hired a new risk officer. Established in November 2014, the Bank is the UK government’s economic development bank aiming to drive growth and prosperity.

The British Business Bank has selected Chantal Geall as its new Chief Risk Officer (CRO), effective from September 2023.

Geall joins the Bank from Lumon Pay, a private equity-backed firm that provides payment services and foreign exchange.

Prior to Lumon, Geall was CRO for Homes England and is said to have held senior roles at The Co-Operative Bank plc and Royal Bank of Scotland.

Louis Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of the British Business Bank, welcomed Geall, adding that she was hired at a time of renewed focus for the Bank on risk assessment and mitigation, including countering fraud and financial crime.

“Chantal brings a wealth of experience from across the private sector and banking institutions and I look forward to working with her as a key member of our Senior Leadership Team and Executive Committee.”
