Anne Boden MBE
Founder and CEO, Starling Bank
Anne Boden is the founder and CEO of Starling Bank, a leading UK digital consumer bank, which has been named Best British Bank four years in a row.
Starling offers personal, small business, joint and children’s banking services, which are in use in almost three million accounts across the UK. Its Software-as-a-Service and Banking-as-a-Service propositions are based on its own proprietary technology platform.
Since founding Starling in 2014, Anne has led it from a fast-growth fintech to a leading bank that stands firmly in a category of one.
The bank is headquartered in London; has offices in Southampton, Cardiff and Dublin; and its employee base, which is nearing 2,000, is growing by the day.
Anne’s technology know-how shaped her 30 year career in banking and she is widely considered as a thought-leader in the fintech sector. She was awarded an MBE for services to fintech in 2018 and sits on the Business Advisory Councils of both the Prime Minister and the Mayor of London.
