“Access to reliable credit sources at a reasonable rate and encouragement to save are an essential tool for encouraging and enabling social mobility and financial wellbeing and I believe that everyone should have access to these things”
Mainstream banking does not always provide these for everyone and Credit Unions are bridging that gap and delivering these services to a wider spread of society including some who would not normally consider financial services in any form as being for them.
I became a director of CCU as I have a great affection for the Co-operative movement, its aims ambitions and ethos and the Credit Union is an important part of that. I think I have appropriate skills to offer and can make a contribution to the future of CCU.
I’m Executive Dean of the Business School at the University of Bedfordshire following a varied career in legal practice and Higher Education.
I spent 16 years at The Co-operative Bank in the legal services department as Senior Litigation Manager.
Specialisms: qualified solicitor specialising in finance and banking law. Experienced manager and strategic leader, with a PhD in Law.
