Julie Green was appointed as NED Innovation and Commercial. Julie has achieved success within various senior and challenging roles, most recently for AVIVA. Her early career includes time with Commercial Union and JP Morgan. I believe she is very committed to everything she does and, once committed, follows through to the highest standards, and her career achievements are testament to this. She has a wonderfully fresh and energetic approach and a glow about her. Socially conscious, she led the TIZER campaign to offer free financial advice to customers.
