Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has appointed an independent non-executive director as the eighth member on its board.
Astrid Grey has joined from Lloyds Banking Group, which she had been since 2008. She joined as risk director for corporate markets, and subsequently became chief operating officer for commercial banking and then internal audit.
Before that, she spent 11 years at Deutsche Bank as chief credit officer for corporate and institutional banking. She also worked as an analyst within Credit Suisse, Moody’s and Credit Lyonnais.
Robert Sharpe, chairman of HTB, said: “Astrid has an impressive track record as a risk professional in the banking industry and we are fortunate to have secured her as a member of the HTB board.
“The bank has ambitious plans for the future and Astrid will be a great fit within the board, bringing additional skills and experience in the oversight of risk, as we build a well-controlled and successful business.”
Grey said: “I am honoured to be joining the board of HTB. I am very much looking forward to working with both my fellow non-executives and the executive team to sustain and develop the bank’s franchise and strong reputation.”
