“I joined the Society’s Board in 2016 following a number of years as a Non-Executive Director with Skipton’s financial advice business. I’ve got to know the broader business of the Society well and, importantly, what it stands for – especially in terms of putting customers at the heart of everything we do. My personal goal remains to play my part in ensuring that we really understand our customers’ needs and provide them with the most appropriate solutions from a business that continues to be in robust financial health.”
