The 2008 financial crisis and the consequent loss of trust in the investor-driven and banking markets introduced me to ethical, values-driven credit unions.
I have been involved with credit unions for 14 years. During this time I have been Chair of Holdfast Credit Union involved in its day to day running and a Director of Harlowsave Credit Union where I played an active role in its merger with Plane Saver Credit Union. After some years of working with Norwich Credit Union I joined its Board in 2022.
I have been Chair and continue to be Treasurer of the East of England ABCUL Forum where I have run lectures on GDPR, internet security and workplace IT security practice. From here the next step was to join the board of ABCUL, in 2022.
