ClearBank names Andrew Barker as Chief Revenue Officer
ClearBank, the enabler of secure accounts, real-time clearing and embedded banking for financial institutions, today announced that it has appointed Andrew Barker as its new Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).
Andrew will play an integral role in developing world-class, go-to-market operations to fulfil the bank’s international growth ambitions, following its £175m investment from Apax Digital in March 2022. He will report directly to ClearBank CEO, Charles McManus.

Prior to joining ClearBank, Andrew was Senior Vice President of EMEA North at SAP Signavio and was instrumental in its successful expansion across Europe and internationally.
“I am joining ClearBank at an exciting time of growth for the business,” said Andrew. “Helping to bring ClearBank’s unique offering to more businesses in new markets is a fantastic opportunity.”
“Across financial services, we’re seeing many of the big UK brands expanding their reach, across Europe and internationally,” said Charles McManus, CEO at ClearBank. “The right strategy and the right offering are crucial for a successful expansion, and Andrew will be key to this process.”
