Meet the Close Brothers' employees

Message from Luke Bazzard, Chief Information Officer

"Welcome to Close Brothers. It’s an interesting time to be working within Banking Technology and Business Change. We are leading a large transformation programme that is driving the way forward for the Bank and through collaboration with the business we are improving the customer journey and customer experience across every industry. We’re also building new tools and capability while improving our existing platforms to set us up for a successful future.

I have been with the Bank more than three years and the one thing that excites me working here is the people. We are small enough that you can grow relationships and big enough to collaborate across different areas of technology and the business. We are an open and diverse team always on the lookout for great talent to join us on our transformational journey.”
