“I am thrilled and honoured to have been appointed as the new Chair of the Audit & Risk Committee.

I previously served as the Deputy Chair and would like to thank our outgoing Chair (Robert Everitt) for his commitment and dedication over his term in office. He will be a hard act to follow!

We have a great, experienced committee and are committed to continuous improvement across all risk and assurance areas of the business.

“I joined Havebury’s Audit & Risk Committee at the beginning of 2016. I am currently employed as the Fire Safety Manager for a large supermarket chain. As part of a small team of safety professionals, I provide policies and advice on fire safety for around 2,000 shops, offices and warehouses. I served in the London Fire Brigade for over 20 years from the age of 18 and have continued to work in the Fire Safety industry ever since. I am proud of the time I spent as a firefighter during which I was involved in many serious incidents and rescues.

Having moved to Suffolk in 2010, I was looking for an opportunity to find out about and become involved in local issues, after a short spell of volunteering at a National Trust site I saw this opportunity at Havebury as being perfect.

I am married with two grown up daughters and a grown up step-son. I love to garden, cook, walk and play the occasional round of golf”

“I have an impressive track record of outstanding performance at senior levels in Risk, Transformational Change, Customer Service and Operations Management over a 30+ year period within the Financial Services Industry.  I have led the Customer Proposition Integration Programme when NatWest and RBS merged in 2001 and more recently was one of a very small cadre of female executives to lead the regulatory interface during a high profile Industry Payments Systems failure.  I hold the Operations Management MBA from Warwick University, am qualified in AML/STF and am an MSP practiser for Programme Management. I am also a seasoned conference speaker, media trained and appeared on TV discussing the life and challenges of senior women in banking.

 

Since leaving full time City life, I have continued as an Executive Coach and Mentor, become a Business Consultant, started working with a Financial Services recruitment company, been a Non Executive Director for a FinTech start up and am now excited to be working with Havebury as a Non Executive Director supporting the Audit & Risk Committee and Strategic Board.  Away from work, I am married to Martin, have a daughter, Ciara who teaches and performs in Musical Theatre, is a semi professional musician and a club runner about to complete her 25th (and last!) marathon.”
