SANTANDER UK chief executive Ana Botin will this week join the Mayor’s Fund for London as a trustee.
Botin, who has led the UK subsidiary of the Santander Group for almost two years, will become a trustee on 1 November, after being nominated to the board by the charity’s patron, Boris Johnson.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said yesterday: “Having personally nominated Ana to join the Board of Trustees it’s wonderful to see both her and Santander UK getting behind the capital’s young people. I wholeheartedly encourage other businesses to do the same.”
The fund invests in projects that aim to improve the job chances of disadvantaged children.
“I have been impressed with the approach to funding projects that really make a difference, helping young people develop new skills,” said Botin.
