Larcombe spent almost six years at the telecoms company, the last two as brand and marketing director.

Larcombe’s predecessor at Tesco Bank was Chris Pitt, who joined from HSBC in 2010 as director of marketing before returning to HSBC at the end of 2014.

Larcombe was featured in Marketing's Power 100 marketers in 2015.
