Gay Huey Evans, the bank’s vice-chairman, is seeking further board roles

Barclays Capital’s sparky vice-chairman Gay Huey Evans is saying goodbye to banking and hello to the boardroom, after being encouraged by her experience as a newly appointed London Stock Exchange director to seek further board roles.

She made an early impression on LSE chairman Chris Gibson-Smith, who was singing her praises at the annual meeting. Her career spans banking, fund management and regulation. Ms Huey Evans joined Barclays Capital in early 2008 to work on relationships with sovereign wealth funds.

The 56-year-old came to Barclays from Citi, where she was head of governance for the alternative investments unit in the Europe region. She was also president of its now-defunct hedge fund, Tribeca Global, before it bought Old Lane in 2007 – a deal that eventually paved the way for Old Lane founder Vikram Pandit to become Citi chief executive.

Before starting at Citi in 2005, she was at the FSA as director of the markets division and capital markets division, having joined the FSA in 1998 from Bankers Trust.

She has many admirers in the City and beyond, including former Citi and now Lloyds’ chairman Sir Win Bischoff, as well as her good friend, former chancellor Lord Lamont.
