Chief Executive

Role at Tees Mutual: Chief executive

I joined Tees Mutual in...October 1987

My career highlights include...being part of a team that has guided the society through some tough challenges, especially the fallout from the 2008-2009 financial crisis 

My proudest moment was…seeing my three children grow up into the sort of people you would like to have a pint with.

My favourite place in the Tees area is…Cattersty Sands Beach (Skinningrove). 

What I love most about living here is…the people, the beaches, countryside and all the great cycling routes.

I spend too much money on…holidays and cycling gear.

When I’m not at work you’ll find me…with my family and mates, walking the dogs, trying to look ok on a bike, the Riverside Stadium and the Linny.

You might be surprised to learn that…when I was being baptised the priest christened me Fiona Jane due to a slight mix up in the running order.

The best thing about working for Tees Mutual is…the members! I've met some fascinating people over the years, members who fought in the Spanish Civil War, Dunkirk and D Day veterans, but also some of the kindest and most caring people you could ever wish to come across.

If I didn’t work for Tees Mutual I’d…like to be managing a wildlife lodge in Botswana.
