Group Head of Public Policy and Corporate Responsibility at Barclays
Ms Wiggins will be responsible for leading Barclays' efforts in tackling climate change, and for integrating our ambition and commitments to help accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy into the business - driving the evolution and operational implementation of the Group's extensive new Climate Policy, which was supported overwhelmingly by shareholders at the company's AGM on 7 May. She will also have accountability for the Group's sustainability and citizenship agendas, and for ensuring the company's societal purpose is present in strategic decision-making at the highest levels in the organisation. This will enable us to deliver the best of Barclays in an effective and collaborative way for the benefit of our people, our shareholders, and the communities in which we operate, as well as for society more broadly. Ms Wiggins will also assume overall responsibility for Corporate Relations and Regulatory Relations. Ms Wiggins joined Barclays in 2002, progressing through a number of roles in corporate and private banking, and was the CEO of Barclays Bank Ireland, and subsequently Head of East and South East for UK Corporate Banking coverage. She is currently Group Chief of Staff, a role she has held since 2018.
