“I am really looking forward to working with my new colleagues across the group, and to working together to continue Helping Britain Prosper.”

In her new role, Bierton will lead the everyday banking team to deliver services and propositions to personal customers managing their current and savings accounts.

At Santander, she started as head of current accounts, before ending up as director of products, Santander Business.
