Next Generation Leadership Council

Our Next Generation Leadership Council (NGLC) brings together a diverse group of people from across the financial and related professional services industry who have been identified by their firms as high-potential future leaders.

Chaired by Bruce Carnegie-Brown, TheCityUK Leadership Council Chairman, the NGLC has been formed to provide fresh perspectives, ideas and constructive challenge to the work we do on behalf of the industry. Members were nominated by their TheCityUK Leadership Council representatives and appointed by a nominations committee of senior practitioners.
