The State of UK Industry - a view from Experian
Tuesday 23 February 2010
Charlotte’s talk focused on the current economic climate, key pressures on business today and the outlook for the UK economy. Experian's data allows us to take a snapshot of the current business economy by region, sector, size and type of business. It also projects different scenarios for growth in the future and its implications for the UK economy. Rather than paint a single national picture, we painted a picture by region and even city to understand which areas are likely to be more resilient through the recession and future recovery.
Charlotte was the executive in charge of Goldfish, Discover Financial Services’ UK credit card business, prior to joining Experian. She led the strategy and operations of that business, including the acquisition and sale of credit card portfolios, the spin-off of Discover from Morgan Stanley and the eventual sale of Goldfish to Barclays. Prior to that, Charlotte was the Managing Director of Strategic Planning for Morgan Stanley, overseeing M&A and strategic initiatives across the firm. Charlotte was also a Principal at McKinsey & Company and jointly led their North American Wholesale Financial Services sector. Charlotte earned a BA in Economics and History at the Hertford College, Oxford University, UK. She is a member of the Finance Committee of Oxford University Press, a Trustee of First Story and a member of the Board of Governors of Nottingham Trent University.
