Earlier Barclaycard roles included leading programmes across Europe to enhance the customer experience, driving net growth across UK customer portfolios as well as extensive leadership experience across diverse teams

In her role, Maria will be responsible for new business and proposition enhancement for Lloyds Bank’s merchant card customers, through its Cardnet joint venture.
