Naguib Kheraj (born 1965) City' [1] is the Vice-Chairman of Barclays Bank. He previously worked as Group Finance Director of Barclays Bank from January 2004 to March 2007, and as Chief Executive Officer of JP Morgan Cazenove from October 2008 to March 2010.[2] He joined Lazard in January 2011 but left in February, stating "I am very sad to be leaving Lazard, and have not taken this decision lightly. I underestimated the difficulty of managing my external activities in a way that would enable me to be properly engaged in an executive role and have realised that it is not possible to fulfil my responsibilities to Lazard to the best of my ability whilst maintaining my personal commitments." Lazard stated: "We understand and respect Naguib's reasons for stepping down. He was a friend of the firm before he joined and will continue to be a friend. We wish him well."[3]
