Former Legal & General chief executive Tim Breedon is set to join the board of Barclays as a non-executive director.
Breedon (pictured) was CEO at L&G from January 2006 to June 2012, having previously been group director (investments) since January 2002.
He served as the chairman of the Association of British Insurers between July 2010 and July 2012, and his former directorships include a role at the Investment Management Association.
"[Breedon] brings extensive knowledge and experience of financial services, regulation and customer focus to the Barclays boards," said chairman designate Sir David Walker.
Barclays' board lost a clutch of key personnel earlier this year in the aftermath of the bank's £290m fine for manipulating LIBOR.
Chairman Marcus Agius, chief executive Bob Diamond, COO Jerry del Misser and remuneration committee chair Alison Carnwath all resigned at the start of the summer.
The bank's retail and business banking head Antony Jenkins succeeded Diamond as group CEO in August, with Walker set to take over from Agius as chairman next month.
Breedon will start the role on 1 November 2012. He will remain an adviser to L&G until 31 December of this year.
