Aldermore has announced the appointment of two Non-Executive Directors to its Board. Peter Shaw joins as Independent Non-Executive Director and Neil Cochrane as Non-Executive Director.

Peter brings over 30 years’ experience in financial services to Aldermore. He spent the majority of his career at RBS NatWest joining as a graduate and progressing through a number of business roles before spending his last eight years with the Group in the Risk Function, latterly as Chief Risk Officer for Retail, Wealth & Ulster Bank. Between May 2012 and January 2013, Peter acted as interim Chief Risk Officer for the Co-operative Banking Group. Peter is currently also a Non-Executive Director at Bank of Ireland UK PLC where he chairs the bank’s Risk Committee.

Neil has been involved with Aldermore since 2010, when he joined AnaCap Financial Partners LLP’s Business Services team, responsible for day-to-day interaction with senior management of portfolio companies. Neil is currently an investment director within the team and has over eight years’ financial services experience. He started his career as a consultant at Oliver Wyman Financial Services in 2006 where he was involved in a broad range of projects for banking and insurance clients.

Glyn Jones, Chairman of Aldermore Bank said: 

“I am delighted to have been able to attract two Non-Executive Directors of Peter and Neil’s quality. They bring with them complementary backgrounds and experience, something I believe is crucial in developing a Board that can best steer Aldermore to even greater heights in the future.
