SIR Win Bischoff takes over from Sir Victor Blank as chairman of Lloyds Banking Group today. The former Citigroup chairman is expected to launch a boardroom reshuffle that will axe non-executive directors left over from the HBOS takeover and see several departures from the executive board. One of Bischoff’s first tasks will be to oversee a reduction in Lloyds’ use of the government’s Asset Protection Scheme (APS).
