Clare Nestor

Head of Operations

Matt Newman

As Head of Operations Clare is responsible for our Customer Service team as well as our business operations including payments, cards and fraud.

She has had a varied career in financial services over thirty years working in corporate banking, risk management and operations management. She started her career with NatWest subsequently moving to RBS and Virgin Money before joining Starling in 2016. She was attracted by the opportunity of using her experience to build a truly better bank whilst continuing to learn more about the fintech world.

If she wasn’t at Starling, Clare would be travelling the world. She wants to visit 100 countries and still has a few to go to reach her target!
