Diana Brightmore-Armour

Spear’s Review

Appointed chief executive of C. Hoare & Co. in 2021, Diana Brightmore-Armour has played her part in London banking history: she is the first female CEO of the city’s oldest privately owned bank.

‘We are a 349-year-old bank with one eye always on the future,’ said Alexander Hoare – a member of C. Hoare & Co.’s founding family and now its managing partner – upon her appointment. For her own part, Brightmore-Armour praised the bank’s much-celebrated commitment to social responsibility, as well as its peerless dedication to its clients.

‘I have been impressed by the clear sense of purpose shared by the partners and my colleagues, and their absolute commitment to putting the customer first in all their decisions,’ she said.
