As Chief Operations Officer Clare is responsible for our Customer Service team, our account onboarding teams, as well as our business operations including payments, cards and financial crime operations.

She has had a varied career in financial services over 30 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!
