Shelley Doorey-Williams appointed first Chief Executive of LFBF

The London Foundation for Banking and Finance (LFBF) – a charity previously known as The London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF) – has today announced the appointment of Shelley Doorey-Williams as its first Chief Executive.

The charity was renamed ‘The London Foundation for Banking & Finance (LFBF)’ following the acquisition of LIBF’s education and training activities by IU Group in March 2023.

Steven Haberman, Chair, said:

“Our charity has a long and proud history – for over 140 years we’ve been dedicated to supporting lifelong education and deepening knowledge in banking and finance. In that time we’ve helped over 1.5m people to develop their skills and careers.

“I’m delighted to be able to confirm that we have now appointed our first Chief Executive Officer to lead the charity in its ongoing mission. Shelley Doorey-Williams has over 25 years’ experience in the Financial Services sector, was a previous Trustee of LIBF and is one of the City’s leading lights in governance and diversity.

“LFBF will continue its work to support the advancement of knowledge and education in financial services through funding bursaries, scholarships and financial education projects under our new name; along with recognising those who achieve the highest standards of professionalism through conferring chartered status. Shelley is very well placed to lead that work.”

Shelley Doorey-Williams, Chief Executive said:

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the charity in its newly independent guise. I’m a passionate advocate of financial enablement and inclusion, and I’m keen to ensure that our work to support people – young and old – to advance their financial knowledge and embark on worthwhile careers in the Financial Services sector continues to blossom and thrive.

“The world is changing fast, and there is an urgent need for people to have the skills and knowledge to improve their financial literacy and wellbeing. We have an opportunity now to build on our legacy, and innovate, along with the sector, to ensure we continue to fulfil our charitable purpose, which is the advancement of knowledge of, and education in, financial services.”
