Hodge Bank has appointed Graeme Hughes (pictured above) as senior independent director of Julian Hodge Bank and Hodge Life Assurance Company and David Gulland to the board of Hodge Life Assurance Company.
Both will also join the board of Hodge Limited and play a significant role in broadening the perspective of the board as it navigates the years ahead.
Graeme has spent most of his career with Nationwide Building Society, most recently as group distribution director.
David — who has more than 30 years of experience as an insurance professional — currently holds varying governance and oversight responsibilities at the Royal London Group, PG Mutual and the Funeral Planning Authority.
Both Adrian Piper, chairman at Hodge Bank, and Jonathan Hodge, non-executive director at Hodge Bank, recently announced their retirement from the business.
“I am delighted to welcome Graeme and David,” said Adrian.
“They have each enjoyed long and varied careers in financial services and we are very pleased to be able to call on their perspectives and expertise as the business develops.
“It has been a huge privilege to lead the Hodge businesses through some challenging times and to see it emerge stronger and well set for its next chapter.”
Steve Pateman, CEO at Hodge, added: “Adrian has played a critical role in creating a financial institution that is fit for the modern world.”
