Dambisa Moyo becomes Barclays non-executive director

23rd April 2010

Economist and author Dambisa Moyo has been made a non-executive director on the board of Barclays.

The 41-year-old's economic work focuses on global affairs and the macroeconomy, with her books including Dead Aid - which offers suggestions on how poverty can be ended in Africa without developing nations having to remain reliant on aid.

Her forthcoming work, How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices, will examine how politically-motivated policy decisions placed the world's economies at the risk of decline.

Marcus Agius, chairman of Barclays, said: 'I am delighted that Dambisa is joining Barclays. Her background in financial services and as a global economist will bring valuable insight to the Barclays board.'

Moyo has previously worked in the Europe, central Asia and Africa departments at the World Bank and the debt capital markets, hedge funds and global macroeconomics teams at Goldman Sachs.

In 2008, Patience Wheatcroft, a former editor of the Sunday Telegraph and The Times' City editor from 1997 to 2006, was appointed to the Barclays board.
