The Chancellor has appointed Ian Ackerley as the new Chief Executive of NS&I (National Savings and Investments).
Announcing the appointment Simon Kirby, Economic Secretary to the Treasury, said:
Ian Ackerley’s extensive experience in retail financial services and effective leadership skills make him the ideal candidate to be the next Chief Executive of NS&I.
NS&I sits at the heart of our savings sector and Ian will play a key role in shaping the next phase of NS&I’s digital transformation so that it continues to deliver for millions of savers across the UK.
Ian Ackerley said:
Like many people across the UK, I grew up with NS&I: my first savings were in Premium Bonds, which were bought for me as a child. It is a brand I have long admired – particularly for how it has transformed itself into a 100% direct business without losing the trust and loyalty of its customers. I’m proud to be given the opportunity to lead NS&I and look forward to joining the team.
