Alice Altemaire has joined United Trust Bank (UTB) as non-executive director after Roger Tidyman, executive director and board member, officially retired last Saturday.
Altemaire is group chief financial officer (CFO) and vice president for Accounting & Performance Control at RCI Banks & Services, Groupe Renault’s finance arm, and also leads RCI’s innovation programme. She helped launch the British division of RCI Bank, where between 2012 and 2016 she held the role of CFO and head of the deposit business.
She also sits on the board of cab comparison tech company Karhoo and fleet management app provider BulbThings.
Graham Davin, chief executive officer of UTB, said: “Alice’s experience working at the highest level of an ECB regulated bank that operates globally in retail savings and motor finance means that she will bring valuable specialist knowledge to the United Trust Bank board. As we continue to grow and explore opportunities to expand into new markets, including the motor sector, the diverse blend of skills and expert knowledge on our board will ensure that we continue to benefit from wise counsel and challenge.”
Meanwhile, Roger Tidyman retired from his executive director role on September 30. Tidyman first joined UTB in 1997 as managing director. He will remain on the board of the bank’s holding company, UTB Partners.
Richard Murley, Chairman of United Trust Bank, commented: “Roger Tidyman’s decades of experience and deep knowledge of credit and property lending will be truly missed by the staff and the board of directors. Roger has spent the last 20 years at United Trust Bank and has been instrumental in its growth and success. As a continuing director of the Bank’s holding company, Roger will be able to provide a strategic view. On behalf of the entire UTB team and the board of directors I would like to thank him for his contribution, and wish him a long and fulfilling retirement.”
