"A true champion of British business"Add to my shortlist
As Chair of the Banking Standards Review Council, Richard led both the report on, and the implementation of efforts to raise standards with banking in the aftermath of the financial crisis. After leaving the Financial Times, Richard became the first non-economist appointed a full-time external member of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee.

Once appointed to succeed Digby Jones as head of the CBI, Richard's tenure was marked by business and political turmoil. He was appointed Chancellor of the University of Warwick in 2008, and is an independent non-executive of EY and chair of Big Society Trust.
