VETERAN FINANCE DIRECTOR Marisa Cassoni has joined the board of Skipton Building Society as a non-executive director.

The appointment is the first boardroom role taken on by Cassoni since she retired as finance director of employee-owned John Lewis Partnership in June.

Cassoni, who served as finance director of JLP since 2006, owns an impressive finance CV which includes stints as group FD of Royal Mail, Prudential and Britannic Insurance.

She was replaced at JLP by Helen Weir, the former head of Lloyds Banking Group’s retail division.

The appointment is effective immediately.
