It’s a huge privilege to be Chair of a business that’s such an important part of the town where I was born and bred. I am proud to be part of the UK’s second biggest building society and the great value savings and mortgages we provide. As we are owned by our members, we can focus on doing the right thing for them without having to focus on profit, as others need to. I also chair the Nominations & Governance Committee and sit on both the Remuneration Committees. Close
