Barclays US Consumer Bank today announced the appointment of Doug Villone as Head of US Cards and Partnerships. Villone will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the bank’s consumer credit card programs and Barclays’ strategic partnerships with more than 20 of America’s best-known brands.

Villone is a seasoned financial services leader with over 25 years’ experience in credit cards, banking and payments. This is a homecoming for Villone who worked for the US Consumer Bank from 2007 to 2018 in various leadership roles that spanned credit card partnership management, operations and chief of staff to the CEO.

He re-joins Barclays following five years at Goldman Sachs where he served most recently as the Global Head of Operations for Marcus, its consumer branded business. He oversaw all facets of operations during the bank’s foray into the US consumer market with products that included credit cards, loans, investments and savings. Earlier in his career, Villone managed credit card programs for HSBC Card and Retail Services and Bank of America (previously MBNA).
