A former account manager at what was IAS b2b Marketing in Manchester, Wheble has headed up the M&S Bank press office since 2011 and this year her remit was extended to include internal comms. She leads a team of four at the bank’s head office in Chester.

An accomplished horse rider who has competed in advanced level dressage, Wheble has needed a steady hand during a busy period for the comms team. First came the rebrand from M&S Money in 2012, and a similarly substantial communications effort was needed when the bank launched its first mainstream current account last year, as well as its first savings account in March.
