In addition, she is an ambassador for Women on Boards and an executive coach.
Nicolina Andall brings 20 years of experience as a commercial lawyer to the newly created apprentice board member role. She has also served on the boards of both public and non-profit organisations and is currently in-house counsel for global engineering business Atlas Copco. Previously, she worked as a senior solicitor at SJ Berwin, where she was responsible for UK construction deals. In addition, Nicolina is an independent panel member at the Ministry of Justice and also an independent member of the London Advisory Committee, where she assesses candidates for magistrate roles.
This new role has been created by Aldermore to give up and coming talent first-hand experience of a commercial board, in an observational role.
Pat Butler, chairman at Aldermore, said: “We are delighted to welcome both Romy and Nicolina to Aldermore.
“Romy’s extensive background in international banking and overseas markets will be invaluable as we seek out more avenues to innovate and grow our footprint in the UK.
“Nicolina is an accomplished commercial lawyer with experience in public and not-for-profit arenas.
“We were impressed by her achievements, her enthusiasm and her determination to build a non-executive portfolio.
“I am confident that Aldermore will benefit from her experience, and we are committed to mentoring her during her time with us, which we hope will be a springboard to a successful non-executive career.”
Romy Murray added: “Having worked across the banking industry and being a small business owner myself, I know how crucial it is to provide tailored funding solutions to clients.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the experienced and respected Aldermore board.”
