Dr. Gilvary will take up his new role with effect from February 1, 2020.

Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) today announces the appointment of Dr. Brian Gilvary as a Non-executive Director. Dr Gilvary will assume his new role with effect from February 1, 2020.

Dr. Gilvary has served as Chief Financial Officer for BP p.l.c. since 2012. He joined BP in 1986 after obtaining a PhD in Mathematics. After a variety of commercial and financial roles internationally in BP’s upstream, downstream and trading businesses, he became chief executive of BP’s integrated supply and trading function in 2005 and in 2010 deputy CFO and head of finance. He will retire from BP on June 30, 2020.

His experience outside BP includes serving as a non-executive director and audit committee member of Air Liquide S.A., the Royal Navy, and the Francis Crick Institute. Currently, he is Chairman of ‘The 100 Group’ of the FTSE 100 Finance Directors.

As a member of the Board, Dr. Gilvary is set to bring to Barclays his extensive experience of management, finance and strategy gained at BP and other public and private Boards. Dr. Gilvary’s experience with and understanding of the challenges and opportunities inherent in the energy transition, including the acceleration of key renewable options and developing key capital intensive clean energy technologies, will be invaluable as Barclays considers how it can help to accelerate the transition to a low carbon world.

Let’s recall that, in December 2019, Matthew Lester informed the company of his intention to step down from his role as a Non-executive Director of Barclays PLC and Barclays Bank PLC, and as a member of its Risk and Audit Committees, with effect from January 1, 2020. His decision to step down from Barclays follows his appointment as Chairman of Kier Group plc effective January 1, 2020.
