“Living in the Skipton area and having previously been part of the Group I welcomed the opportunity to join the Board. The Society stays true to its mutual ethos and has its members at the centre of its thinking. I aim to bring my experience of strong corporate governance to the Board to support the Society’s ongoing financial strength and successful growth strategy.”
