Anne joined the Board in 2017. Her extensive UK and international Board-level experience working with both FTSE™ 100 and independently owned companies, in both regulated and non-regulated businesses, reinforces the Board’s broad range of skills and competencies.
Her experience spans sectors including financial services, retail, telecommunications, manufacturing and consumer. Anne’s breadth of knowledge, skills and qualities combine strategic leadership and deep people, culture and organisational transformation expertise with a solid understanding of governance, control and risk.
She has held executive roles at Hallmark Cards, Lloyds Banking Group/HBOS, Safeway and Thus Plc, and is a trusted executive coach and adviser to Boards and Directors in diverse businesses in the UK and the US.
She also chairs the Remuneration Committee and is a member of both the Society’s Audit Committee and the Nominations Committee. She is also a Director of Newcastle Financial Advisers Limited.
“My track record of leading large people functions and experience in facilitating transformative organisational change brings a broader view for the Board on these matters as the Society develops its people strategies, including our approach to culture, talent, succession and reward.”
