Bella joined the bank in 2000 and was invited to join the partnership in 2001.  Within the partnership she has board level responsibility for banking operations, finance, risk and compliance.  As a lending partner she works closely with the relationship managers. She has huge enthusiasm for meeting customers to help build the relationships and friendships that are so key to our business.  She is Chair of the bank’s historic defined benefit pension scheme.
