(United Kingdom) Santander UK, a European banking company with vast aspirations in the industry, announced on Wednesday that Rakshit Kapoor will be joining the company as Chief Data Officer and that he will be leaving his current role as Group Chief Data Officer at HSBC after working there for almost four years. Santander UK first began its presence in Europe in 1988, originally working with The Royal Bank Scotland and in 2004 beginning to acquire other banking companies such as Abbey National, Bradford & Bingley, and Alliance & Leicester. Since then, Santander UK has put great focus on the digital potential of banking as well as expanding its European presence. Rakshit Kapoor has a lengthy career in Data and Analytics, working as Chief Information Officer at Travelers, Managing Director of Data and Analytics at JP Morgan Chase, and Vice President at TIAA. Rakshit Kapoor's great experience with Data and Analytics as well as banking management should be a great boost to Santander UK and their growing business.
