The Transparency Task Force (TFF) has announced the appointments of its new members and trustees to its advisory board.
The board, which TTF advisory board chairman John Howard described as a “dream team”, held its inaugural meeting yesterday (25 September).
Three new members were appointed: David Pitt-Watson, visiting fellow at Cambridge Judge Business School, David Weeks, co-chair of the Association of Member Nominated Trustees and Gavin Starks, founder of Dgen.
Howard commented: “We have deliberately set out to create an ‘all walks of life’ board and we’re confident we have done that. The Board’s diversity has already led to meaningful discussion and debate, for example in exploring key questions such as what the Transparency Task Force should aspire to become.”
Numerous trustees were also appointed to the board: Heather Buchanan, Henry Tapper, JB Beckett, Lord Jamie Lindsay, Margaret Snowden OBE, John Howard, John Rosling, Julia Dreblow, Matthew Simms, Baroness Ros Altmann, Steve Kenzie, Susan Flood, Sue Lewis, Alistair Kellie and David Masters.
TTF hopes that the new appointments will drive up the levels of transparency in financial services.
Howard concluded: “In my view, the organisation has enormous potential as a force for good and for the sake of the integrity of the financial system we have a collective duty to realise as much of that potential as possible. We are all volunteers in the wider TTF community, who are motivated to initiate a much-needed cultural shift in financial services.”
