Economist gets international role at Treasury

HM Treasury has announced the appointment of economist Mark Bowman as the new director general of international finance

As such, he will be responsible for advancing the UK’s economic and financial interests internationally and in the European Union. He will join the Treasury’s executive management board.

Bowman is no stranger to the workings of Whitehall. He joined the Treasury in 1995 and spent several years in the international teams at the Treasury, working as a deputy director and then director of international finance. He then became the Treasury’s director of strategy, planning and budget before moving across to the Department for International Development, where he has been director general of humanitarian, security, conflict and international finance for the past two years.

He takes up his new post in November
