The Bank of England is making history by appointing Clare Lombardelli as the next deputy governor, a move that will result in a majority of women on its board. Lombardelli, currently the chief economist at the OECD, will be stepping into the role in July, taking over from Ben Broadbent who has completed two five-year terms at the central bank.

Visionary Leadership

Notably, other major central banks around the world have also been helmed by women, such as Christine Lagarde, the President of the European Central Bank, and Janet Yellen, former Chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve who now serves as Secretary of the Treasury. Lombardelli's appointment marks a significant step towards gender diversity in top financial positions.

Responsibilities and Priorities

In her new role, Lombardelli will be at the helm of formulating and implementing monetary policy in the U.K. She will also lead the bank's research, data analysis, and other key functions. Of particular importance is her oversight of the forthcoming forecasting review, spearheaded by former Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke.

In addition to her current position at the OECD, Lombardelli has previously served as the chief economic advisor to the U.K. Treasury, bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to her new role at the Bank of England.
