Skipton welcomes new non-execs

Monday 05 December 2022

The board of offshore bank Skipton International has appointed two non-executive directors.

Graeme Smith is the outgoing Chief Executive Officer of Jersey Business, a role he has held for the past eight years, after previously working in international and regional banking with RBS and NatWest International.

Justine Shaw is employed at Skipton Building Society as Chief People Officer.

Skipton’s Chair, Bobby Ndawula, was delighted to welcome Mr Smith and Ms Shaw to the company's board, saying: "Graeme’s previous banking background, coupled with his vast experience over the past eight years at Jersey Business, will benefit the board and the wider business.

"Alongside Justine’s vast experience and strategic skillset, they will both help us to continue to shape and grow Skipton into the future."

Mr Smith said: "’I am really looking forward to working with Skipton, an organisation that prides itself on excellent customer service and community responsibilities across the Channel Islands. These very much resonate with my own values."

Ms Shaw said: "I have benefitted from working alongside brilliant leaders who I learnt a lot from.

"The attributes they had in common were business acumen, emotional intelligence, authenticity, a lack of ego, with a direct open approach. If I can bring even half of those attributes to my role on the board, I hope I will be adding value."
