ANDREW WILSON APPOINTED SANTANDER DIRECTOR OF CORPORATE COMMS
Santander UK has appointed Andrew Wilson as director of corporate communications and responsible banking.
Santander UK has appointed Andrew Wilson as director of corporate communications and responsible banking, as well as a member of its executive committee. Wilson joined the bank in March, gaining responsibility for providing strategic leadership and advice across Santander’s corporate communications.
Upon taking up this role, Wilson has left strategic communications consultancy Charlotte Street Partners, where he was founding partner. In his career, he has previously held roles such as economist, politician and communications advisor.
“Andrew has a unique combination of experience that will be a huge asset right across the bank,” says Santander UK CEO, Mike Regnier. “He joins us at a very interesting time in the wider political and economic landscape and his perspective will help us shape the way in which we continue to support our customers at this time and into the future.”
Wilson says: “We have seen through the pandemic and the current economic environment the crucial role Santander UK plays in supporting customers and businesses. Ensuring that we are communicating effectively both to them and our own people about the help available has never been more important.
“But it is also clear that customers want to understand and be reassured that we are a sustainable and responsible business in the decisions we make and priorities we have, whether it is about retrofitting homes or tackling financial inclusion in our communities.”
