Frankie Woodhead joins Bank of London as chief product officer

Frankie Woodhead has joined The Bank of London as its new chief product officer.

Woodhead has 15 years of experience in senior leadership roles across business, corporate and retail banking at Barclays and digital banking tech company 10x Banking.

His roles at Barclays included product director positions spanning SME lending, growth, authentication, payments, and customer servicing.

He joins The Bank of London from 10x, where he was a vice president and general manager.

“The Bank of London’s vision is to change the face of banking by making it safer for its clients,” said Anthony Watson, group chief executive and founder of The Bank of London. “We’re delighted to welcome Frankie to our team.”

He continued: “His extensive experience and forward-thinking mindset will make a major contribution to bringing our vision to life. His appointment also comes at an exciting time as we push further into our home market and prepare to take The Bank of London to new regions outside the UK.”

In his new role, Woodhead will be responsible for product development and delivery across the UK bank and group.

“I’m honoured to take on this role at such a key time for the industry and the growing bank," he said. "Having seen the direct client and customer impact of financial crises, it’s clear the world of banking needs to be fundamentally changed to be safer and more transparent.

“Not lending, investing or leveraging any deposits makes The Bank of London a safer home by design for client and customer money. The bank has a bold vision and a product roadmap to completely change the banking landscape. I look forward to working with the team in delivering it.”
