Jill is an experienced business leader with a background in technology, having spent over 30 years in various leadership positions. Since 2019, Jill has been Non-Executive Director for NS&I, the UK government-owned savings bank. Between 2012 and 2015, she was Group Chief Information Officer for Towergate Insurance, the UK-based insurance broker. Prior to this, she served as Group Chief Information Officer for Belron International, the world leader in vehicle glass repair and replacement, from 2009 to 2012.
