Target Group has appointed Aileen Wallace as an independent non-executive director and board member.

Wallace will help set the strategic direction of the business, oversee company culture and ensure delivery of its corporate risk and governance frameworks.

Wallace said of her appointment: “This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a progressive and dynamic organisation with an ambitious growth strategy.

“Technology has a big role to play in the development of the business and will help to enhance Target’s customer proposition.

“This is an area where I have strong expertise and I believe that this, combined with my detailed understanding of the market, will mean I can play an important role in enabling the company to achieve its strategic objectives.”

Wallace has more than 10 years’ experience in executive and non-executive roles, helping to leverage growth opportunities for Co-operative Bank and Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banking Group (CYBG).

Most recently, she held the role of chair of The Co-Operative Bank ESG Outsourcing Committee, providing strategic guidance to its £17bn lending business.

“She has a terrific blend of experience that is ideally-suited to the needs of the business and I expect that her support will be of great help as we continue to build on the success of recent years.”
