Anthony Watson, Group Chief Executive and Founder of The Bank of London has been appointed Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in His Majesty The King’s inaugural Birthday Honours for services to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) community, for Equality and to Diversity.

As Britain’s only gay bank CEO, and the first LGBT person in Europe to found a bank, he leads our firm daily with pride, passion and courage.”

Anthony Watson CBE, Group Chief Executive & Founder of The Bank of London, said: “I am quite literally stunned and humbled at being appointed CBE by His Majesty The King for services to the LGBT Community, for Equality and to Diversity. I accept this honour with immense gratitude.”
