Land Securities chair to take on new Barclays role

LAND Securities chairman Alison Carnwath yesterday added another string to her boardroom bow as she signalled her intention to take up a non-executive directorship at Barclays in August.

Carnwath’s new Barclays role will fill the gap left by her chairmanship of futures broker MF Global, a role she will hand over to ex-Goldman Sachs chief Jon Corzine in August.

She will juggle her positions at Land Securities and Barclays with yet more roles at Man Group, where she is senior independent director; at private equity firm Isis Equity Partners, where she is chairman of the board; and as an adviser to corporate finance advisory firm Lexicon Partners.

Carnwath is also a judge on a prestigious panel of business leaders who will pick the winners of City A.M.’s inaugural awards later this year.
