Susie Aliker

Chief Executive


Susie has over 20 years senior level experience in financial services. She joined BACB as CFO and Company Secretary in 2014, and was appointed to the Board in 2017. In June 2018, Susie was promoted to the role of Chief Executive.

Prior to BACB, during a 14 year career at Credit Suisse, Susie successfully held a number of global management roles (mostly at Managing Director level) and was ultimately responsible for new business for all divisions of Credit Suisse across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Susie also served as global Chief Operating Officer for Corporate Services. Outside of the financial services industry, her career started on the Unilever graduate programme, she then went on to work in the retail sector, during which time she qualified as an Accountant and also gained a Masters degree in Business Administration (MBA).

Susie has benefitted from the global nature of her past roles and, while having always been based in the UK, has spent significant time working in the US and, to a lesser degree, Asia. She is widely travelled across Africa and the Middle East.

Susie brings a depth of experience at an Executive level of business development and strategy formulation, risk management, financial services regulation, financial statements and regulatory reporting, corporate governance, anti-financial crime and compliance. Susie balances a focus on shorter-term operational matters, including the Bank’s business development and change agenda, with BACB’s longer-term strategic considerations. In recognition of the criticality of the Bank’s people Susie has led a comprehensive people agenda, ensuring that the Bank builds expertise and develops talent, fostering a cohesive corporate culture where conduct is key. Susie has held Senior Management Functions (SMF) 1 (CEO), 2 (CFO) and 3 (Executive Director) positions of responsibility.

Susie currently sits as a Non Executive Director on the Boards of the Libya British Business Council, Chigwell School and the Association of Foreign Banks.
