Sajid Javid

Sajid is the proud British-born son of immigrants. After attending local state schools, he went on to read Economics and Politics at Exeter University.

Before being elected to Parliament in 2010, he worked in business and finance in London, New York and Singapore for 18 years. Aged 25, he became a Vice President at Chase Manhattan Bank. He later moved to Deutsche Bank in London to help build its business in emerging market countries. Sajid left Deutsche Bank as a senior Managing Director in the summer of 2009 to give something back through public service.

Sajid has held several positions in the UK government, including two Great Offices of State, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Home Secretary. He was the first of the 2010 parliamentary intake to join the Cabinet in 2014, and also the first ethnic-minority MP to become a Secretary of State in UK history. He is a member of Her Majesty’s Privy Council.

He is also a Senior Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, a Senior Advisor to JPMorgan and on the Advisory Board of C3.ai, Inc.

Sajid is married to Laura and they are proud parents of four children.
