Specialist bank Cambridge & Counties has announced the appointment of three new directors to its board: Andrea Hodgson, Simon Lindley and Caroline Fawcett.
Andrea has joined as chief financial officer and arrives from a digital start-up bank where she held the same position.
She has previously held senior roles at National Australia Group, Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Banking Group.
Andrea is also a non-executive director and deputy chair at Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Caroline – who has over 25 years of experience in financial services, as well as a speciality in marketing and customer experience in the UK and US – has been appointed as a non-executive director.
Caroline’s previous roles include a decade as marketing director at Legal & General and she currently sits on the boards of Co-op Insurance and the Money Advice Service.
Simon has been promoted to the board having joined Cambridge & Counties in its launch year of 2012 as its first business development manager.
Simon took over responsibility for the bank’s national real estate finance team in 2015.
Mike Kirsopp, chief executive of Cambridge & Counties, said: “The new arrivals on the board – coming both from within and from outside the business – deepen our collective knowledge, experience and insight.
“We look forward to the contributions Andrea, Caroline and Simon will make in helping Cambridge & Counties grow and expand its reach, while staying true to the customer-focused approach that has characterised its successful first five years.”
