Joanna worked in the financial services industry for more than 25 years, beginning her career in private banking at Credit Suisse before moving to corporate banking and structured finance. After an exciting time working in IT during the years that lead to European Monetary Union (EMU) and the extraordinary challenge of Y2K at the turn of the century, Joanna moved into HR, with a particular focus on strategic planning and change management. Most recently, Joanna worked at the European Investment Bank (EIB), with responsibilities for performance management, talent management, learning and organisational development, sitting on the EIB’s Equal Opportunities joint-committee.
At WSHFT Joanna chairs the Trust’s Quality & Risk Committee, and is a member of the Safeguarding Committee, Patient Experience and Feedback Committee, SIRI panel, Children’s Board, and Diversity Matters Group. She is also a member of the Trust’s Charitable Funds Committee, Appointments and Remuneration Committee and the Senior Independent Director.
Joanna has a degree in psychology from St Andrews University.
