“Credit unions are all about solidarity with our colleagues and neighbours in financial matters. Helping one another save and borrow affordably to build our financial resilience. It is a hugely valuable contribution to society and I’m proud of my work in the sector”
I first became a Credit Union member, like many people, as I wanted a loan. As a passionate supporter and advocate for credit unions, The Co-op Credit Union was the natural choice. Much later, I was asked to join the Board and I thought that it was a great opportunity to use the knowledge I’d gained from working for ABCUL for the best part of a decade to help my own credit union develop and move forward. In 2020, I joined The Co-op Credit Union team as Chief Executive Officer.
As with all co-operative societies, we’re stronger together and the more people join and use our services the better the service will be for everyone. And because, since we’re owned by our members – the people that use the service – we have only your interests at heart.
Specialisms: my background at ABCUL makes me an expert on credit union regulation and legislation. I also have a strong best practice knowledge of leading credit unions in the UK and across the world.
