WIBF have the pleasure of hosting a high profile speaker event with seasoned CRO Rick Hunkin, a very familiar face within Scotland’s financial services. Our interview will focus on Rick’s career journey with insights and anecdotes from his experiences in New Zealand and the UK, along with Rick’s views on diversity and the particular workplace challenges faced by women. We are thrilled to be speaking to Rick in what promises to be an enlightening and entertaining evening.

Rick Hunkin is a vastly experienced financial services executive who has worked in all aspects of retail, commercial and corporate banking for over 35 years. Having started his career with long spells at Nat West and then LloydsTSB, he has since covered a wide span of organisations and held seats on the Boards of several UK financial services companies including Tesco Bank, Cheltenham and Gloucester, Goldfish Bank, GE Money and National Bank of New Zealand. Post the 2007/08 crisis Rick was one of a small senior group hired to resolve issues at Northern Rock and (on the same recovery theme) subsequently also went on to join the Executive team leading the establishment of Williams and Glyn, part of the RBS EU remediation programme. He is currently the Group Chief Risk Officer of Provident Financial plc, an organisation which has been facing its own issues of late….

He has a strong reputation as a straight talking and action orientated risk and business leader and is held in high regard within the market and with regulators. He has a track record of resolving key business issues through transformation and developing high performing teams.
