Sheffield-headquartered British Business Bank has appointed Jenny Knott as Non-executive Director (NED) to the board of British Business Bank plc.

Ms Knott is a highly experienced board-level investment banker with over 30 years’ experience in banking and corporate finance.

She has served as CEO, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Chief Operating Officer (COO) on the Boards of global investment banks, financial services corporates and charitable organisations.

Additionally, she is co-founder of FinTech Strategic Advisors, and assists clients with their FinTech investment and adoption strategies.

“I am excited to be joining the British Business Bank’s Board as a Non-executive Director at such an important time for the UK’s smaller businesses and the wider economy,” she said.

“I look forward to adding my expertise to an already highly accomplished team and working with an organisation that brings a huge amount of value to smaller business finance markets.”

Lord Smith, Chair of the British Business Bank, said: “Jenny has a wealth of industry experience, and we are delighted to welcome her to the Board of the British Business Bank.

“As the Bank continues to grow, her extensive experience as a banker, co-founder and Chair will bring fresh insight and valuable knowledge to our work.”
