Alan Brown (pictured above) has been appointed to the board of Redwood Bank as its new chief risk officer.
Alan will be responsible for the bank’s risk identification and mitigation activities.
He had previously held the role of director of risk and compliance at Redwood, having joined in April 2017.
Prior to joining Redwood, Alan had served at Williams & Glyn, Lloyds Banking Group and Nationwide Building Society.
He has accumulated more than 30 years of experience in financial services, and been responsible for risk and balance sheet management, operations, systems and controls and investment portfolios.
Gary Wilkinson, CEO and co-founder of Redwood, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity and is well deserved.
“Alan is meticulous, methodical and takes pride in what he does.
“He always goes above and beyond, which is why we wanted to recognise him and the importance of the vital role he plays.
“Identifying, mitigating, and adhering to risk and compliance is vital within the banking industry and having Alan overseeing Redwood's activities means we're in safe hands.”
Alan added: “It's humbling to have been appointed as a board member.
“I take my responsibilities extremely seriously and this appointment confirms the importance of a strong risk and compliance function to the bank.
"I look forward to embracing my new role as chief risk officer, guiding Redwood Bank through the continuous challenges of achieving high standards of risk management, compliance and governance.”
