With the launch of the Tesco Bank current account in June 2014, the Bank became a full range of core retail banking and insurance products. In addition to his role at Tesco Bank, Benny was also the Group Strategy Director for Tesco PLC and was a member of the Tesco Executive Committee. Benny retired from Tesco in February 2018.
