Anne could have easily chosen to take the well traveled path and continued her career as a top executive with any of the global banks. After all she has already served as the COO for Allied Irish Bank, the Head of Global Transactions Services for RBSG, and as a senior executive for ABN Amro, UBS, and several other large scale banks. Anne, instead, chose the path less traveled. She is the founder and CEO of Starling Bank, one of the leading "neo" banks out of the UK. She has assembled an outstanding team around her that matches her outstanding personality. We are happy to call Anne a friend of the pod.
