As Snoop prepares for launch...
Gadhia: ‘I’m still searching for top job after Virgin Money’
Jayne-Anne Gadhia: looking for the answer
Former Virgin Money chief executive Jayne-Anne Gadhia has admitted she is still unsettled after leaving such a high profile job.
Mrs Gadhia spoke about her various roles in the last two years as she prepares to defy the lockdown gloom and threat of recession by launching her fintech business Snoop.
With thousands of small businesses struggling to stay afloat Mrs Gadhia will unveil the new app which uses artificial intelligence and open banking data to help consumers save money on bills and day-to-day spending.
But even with Snoop about to launch, she has admitted that after leaving a top banking job she remains on the lookout for something that would replace it.
“I feel I’m still searching for the complete answer post-Virgin Money, for sure,” she said in an interview.
Mrs Gadhia, who had been a senior executive at Royal Bank of Scotland prior to the 2008 crash, joined the Bank of England’s financial policy committee but gave up the role before it started, after being installed as the UK chief executive of the US software firm Salesforce.
But that was also short-lived. Within six months, she resigned from the role, saying it was more like being a “super sales director of our UK business within the matrix of a fantastically successful US company”.
