Sir Philip Hampton
Occupation Chairman
Employer Royal Bank of Scotland Group

Sir Philip Hampton is chairman at Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS). He took over that position on Feb. 3, 2009 when the previous chairman, Sir Tom McKillop, quit RBS on that date, handing over the chairmanship of the troubled bank two months earlier than planned. Hampton, who was previously a chairman at J Sainsbury supermarkets chain, had been due to take over at the annual general meeting in April.[1]

He is set to step down on August 31, 2015 and take up the new role of chairman of the drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline.[2] [3]

Background[edit]

Hampton's appointment to the RBS chairmanship obliged him to step down as the chairman of UK Financial Investments (UKFI), the company set up by the government to hold its stakes in RBS, the merged Lloyds TSB and HBOS, in addition to Bradford & Bingley and Northern Rock.[4]

Previously he held the post of finance director at Lloyds, BT Group plc, BG Group plc, British Gas and British Steel plc.[5]
