“I’m a great believer in the importance of Credit Unions. Having been born in and still living in Rochdale, and having worked for The Co-operative Bank, I have an emotional connection to the movement, and I believe strongly in the concept of mutuality.”
I’m very concerned about financial education and helping people to manage their finances safely, particularly at a time when payday lenders are encouraging people to get into a cycle of debt.
I worked for The Co-operative Bank for ten years back in the late ’80s and ’90s and am now Director and Chief Risk Officer, at AmTrust Europe, a multi-product insurance company.
I joined the board of The Co-op Credit Union in March 2019.
