Barclays Plc on Wednesday said the top boss of Barclays International and Barclays Bank Plc, Tim Throsby, had decided to leave the lender as part of wider leadership changes at the banking giant.

"Restructuring is behind us, our major legacy issues are largely dealt with, and our focus now is on running and growing our business," Group Chief Executive Officer Jes Staley said in a statement. 

"I am making some leadership changes to ensure a much stronger and closer focus on the two respective hemispheres of our diversified Group - our Consumer and Wholesale businesses," he added.
