Nationwide Building Society today announces the Non-Executive Director appointment of Baroness Usha Prashar, one of the UK's most experienced policy advisors, with a 45-year career across the not-for-profit and public sectors, onto its Board and Remuneration Committee with immediate effect.
Baroness Prashar is currently a Member of European Union Select Committee and Chairman of the House of Lords European Union Home Affairs Sub-Committee. She is also Deputy Chair of the British Council, where she also chairs their Remuneration Committee.
Previously, she has also held Non-Executive Director positions at ITV, the Cabinet Office, Unite PLC, Channel 4, Energy Saving Trust and Ealing, Hounslow and Hammersmith Health Authority. She has also held senior positions at the Salzburg Seminar, National Literacy Trust, Royal Commonwealth Society and was the inaugural Chairman of the Judicial Appointments Commission.
David Roberts, Nationwide Building Society Chairman, comments: “Our mutuality defines and differentiates us. Being owned by our members means that Nationwide is able to take decisions in the longer-term interests of our members, and of society. Usha is an enormously experienced policy advisor, with a 45-year career spanning the not-for-profit and public sectors. Her work in government, the Parole Board, and with the Judicial Appointments Commission has been at the heart of community and society. This expertise, understanding and talent will be a tremendous addition to Nationwide’s Board.”
