Lifelong cricketer and supporter of the game Anshu Jain, a former Co-CEO of Deutsche Bank, has joined the Chance To Shine Board of Trustees.

"Chance to Shine’s mission to take the game of cricket and its values of fair play and team work to inner city and state schools, so boys and girls can experience this great game, has long been dear to me," Jain said.

"I am honoured to have been asked to help the Chance to Shine team."

He will join Sir Danny Alexander and Sophie O'Connor, who have recently been appointed to the board, which is chaired by Donald Brydon.

Brydon added: "To have someone with Anshu’s standing join the charity is a significant addition.

"His long-term passion and love both for cricket and for our mission to use cricket to improve lives is evident.

"I’m thrilled to welcome him onto the Board."

The other board members are Judy Coles, Charlotte Edwards CBE, Garri Jones, Tim O'Gorman, Russell Perry, Caspar Rock and Dave Taylor.

Indian-born Jain earned a bachelor's degree with honours in economics at the University of Delhi and he also has an MBA in Finance from the University of Massachusetts.

He joined Deutsche Bank in 1995 and is widely recognised for building the bank's nascent markets business and helping transform the company into a global business, becoming co-CEO in 2012.

Anshu has also advised governments and industry bodies around the world, leading the Deutsche Bank team advising the UK Treasury on financial stability and was on the Board of Directors of the Institute of International Finance.

He has recently served on the International Advisory Panel of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, advising on industry, market and macroeconomic issues.
