On the announcement that John Glen MP will continue in his position as Economic Secretary to the Treasury and City Minister, Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, said,
At a time of considerable change in government, John Glen’s reappointment as City Minister brings welcome stability and consistency. Since 2010 City Ministers have been a short-lived breed, with no fewer than seven in nine years. Continuity in this important role is very welcome.
During his time in the job, John Glen has been a valued interlocutor for the industry. We have appreciated his candour, command of detail and his commitment to promoting UK-based financial and related professional services across the world. We look forward to continuing working with him as we navigate Brexit and look to grow this industry’s position as a great British success story.
