Press release: Elena Paitra appointed head of Lloyds Bank consumer and healthcare

Published: Mar 2018

Paitra, who was previously head of Food and Beverage, joined Lloyds Bank in 2014 having previously spent 14 years with Goldman Sachs.

In her previous role, Paitra was credited with growing Lloyds Bank’s exposure to a number of large corporates in her sectors, enhancing its position as the UK’s leading bank to the industry.

She said: “The UK is in the middle of a fascinating period on many fronts and the next few years will be transformational for consumer-facing and healthcare industries.

“Our experience in these sectors means we can quickly identify the trends that will genuinely transform our clients’ businesses, then support them to develop and take advantage of those opportunities now and in the long-term.”

Paitra was acting head of consumer services and entrepreneurs throughout 2017 before taking up her new role following a formal selection process.

She is soon expected to begin a period of maternity leave, during which time Philipp Gutzwiller will become acting head of consumer and healthcare.

Head of Global Corporates, John Feeney, added: “Since joining Lloyds, Elena has put us in a strong position across the food and beverage sectors and the broader consumer services industry. Philipp is also a leading banker in our business with strong connections across the healthcare and consumer sectors.

“Between them, they have a wealth of skills and expertise to support the needs of our clients and focus on the opportunities and challenges within the industry.”
