The national volunteering charity TimeBank has appointed two new trustees to its Board.

Susan Crichton is a solicitor with over 30 years of in-house experience mostly within the financial services industry.  At TSB she completed its separation from Lloyds and oversaw its IPO including the induction of the new Board and creation of the Legal and Company Secretariat team.   Prior to that she was General Counsel for the Post Office and previously worked at Old Mutual/ Skandia where her role focussed on risk and corporate governance.  She was also General Counsel (EMEA) for GE Money for nine years where her role included responsibility for legal, compliance and government relations in the region.

Susan has been a volunteer school governor in Bucks for over 15 years and until recently was a trustee at the local hospice. 

Chris Weavers works for the NASUWT, the teachers’ union, where he leads the union’s political engagement as well as relationships with a wide range of external organisations domestically and internationally. He previously worked for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, advising and supporting the local authority’s majority group on policy and political matters.

Outside of work, Chris is very active in governance of public bodies, addressing issues including education, crime and housing and is also a trustee of an almshouse charity.
