“I have huge respect for Skipton, which plays such a large part in helping people shape better financial futures for themselves. I think organisations that really focus on their customers’ needs both short-term and future, are the ones that succeed in the long term. I have worked in large corporations and small start-ups and a common thread for making a positive difference is that they all focus on doing the right thing for their customers. Even though technology and large change projects help drive innovation, the key ingredients are always customers and people – ensuring customers, colleagues and members are at the centre of everything.”
