New non-executive director at Skipton
UK PROPERTY SOLICITOR Shelagh Mason has joined the board of Skipton International as a non-executive director.
A member of The Law Society of England and Wales, The Association of Women Solicitors and The Guernsey International Legal Association, she has a keen interest in island affairs and was attracted to working with Skipton given its commitment to giving back to Guernsey.
‘Skipton is a well-respected business and very much a part of Guernsey’s society, with a large proportion of the population either having lending with them or depositing their savings,’ she said.
‘I am looking forward to taking the business forward with my fellow directors, building upon Skipton’s customer-focused culture, supported by a solid legal understanding of the market and good corporate governance.’
She currently acts as a consultant at Collas Crill and sits on a number of boards as an independent director, including her role as chairman of the Channel Islands Property Fund.
Skipton International chairman Ian Cornelius said: ‘We are delighted that Shelagh has decided to join our board as she is an expert in her field and shares Skipton’s values.
‘She has already had a large impact on the island and I’m sure will play an integral role here at Skipton as we continue to grow the business and our offering to the local and international markets.’
