Financial Services senior executive Tony Prestedge is the latest appointment to Lansons’ growing band of senior advisors. Prestedge joins the consultancy armed with years of experience working with some of the UK’s largest FTSE100 financial institutions including as former Deputy CEO at both Santander and Nationwide.

An experienced banker and transformation leader, Prestedge has also held senior positions at Barclays with his last position being Managing Director before he left the business in 2003. He also served as Chief Operating Officer of NHS England’s Test and Trace service during the pandemic.

“Tony is one of the great names in financial services. He has led giant enterprises and been at the forefront of technical revolution in the sector. These achievements, combined with his leading role in delivering the vaccine programme in the pandemic, make him someone that Lansons is proud to have on its team.”
