TSB was built to bring more competition to UK banking and, since our launch in September 2013, we have been establishing ourselves as ‘Britain’s challenger bank’.  That means we’re not here to simply enter the market and do things in exactly the same way they have always been done.  Creating a different culture – from throwing sales targets out the window to our focusing on behaviour and our partnership philosophy – has been central to our success. All the main banks talk about their targets for gender balance but at TSB we were in the unique position to build our senior leadership team and Board from scratch.  From the start we have been committed to putting in place a senior team with a broad range of backgrounds and experience, which also means achieving a good representation of women.
