Chairman of the Board and the Nominations Committee.
“I joined Skipton because it stands out for its excellent customer service and supports the local communities it serves. It’s important to me that we provide financial security for our customers and are known for being an organisation that really cares. I understand the financial services industry and how we can work together to make Skipton the best it can be.”
