Mark Carney to run Bank of England: Queen's University expert


Queen’s University banking expert Louis Gagnon is available to talk about today’s news that Mark Carney has been named the new governor of the Bank of England.

“This is highly unexpected and quite shocking because he had taking himself out of the running for the job. There is a lot of work to be done at the bank of England. Mark Carney is the man to do it because he has the credibility, executive experience and the track record of a central banker,” says Dr. Gagnon, a finance professor and former Royal Bank executive.

Please note that Dr. Gagnon is only available for phone interviews.
