Background and experience
I joined Newbury Building Society in 2015 as the Regulatory Change Manager. Prior to this I spent five years at Santander Corporate Banking in London, five years with Bank of Scotland Corporate Banking in Reading and London and twenty one years with Halifax in various branch locations throughout London and the South East.
I started my career at a building society in the 1980s when all building societies were still mutual organisations whose primary aim was to offer good value savings and mortgages for their members in a friendly and customer focused way. I am proud to be part of the team at Newbury Building Society because it has maintained those values, which in my view make it unique in the local area.
Role and responsibilities
I am responsible for managing the compliance function within the Society, ensuring it complies with the regulatory standards required of a financial services firm. I also ensure the Society is aware of all upcoming regulatory changes that will affect the business and for overseeing the implementation of these changes into the Society’s policy and procedures.
