Naylor has led corporate affairs strategies for firms in a number of sectors including, most recently, in a co-head of global communications role at HSBC. Prior to that, he held the chief communications officer role at Credit Suisse. He has also worked for Centrica, Hess and Shell.

An announcement on the CBI site states that ‘Charles is passionate about helping the CBI create the environment in which business can invest and succeed in order to contribute to the future prosperity of the UK.’

Since leaving HSBC two years ago, Naylor has been working as an independent consultant.

Muniya Barua, former corporate communications director at CBI, left the organisation in September to take up a director of corporate affairs role at public and corporate affairs agency Newington.
