Burnell made chief audit executive for challenger bank Williams & Glyn

AMLIN’s head of internal audit Bernadine Burnell has been appointed chief audit executive at challenger bank Williams & Glyn.

Burnell spent 17 years with Legal & General, latterly as group chief internal auditor, having begun her career as a management accountant with the Sedgwick Group, before undertaking roles at Sun Alliance, Chubb Insurance and GE Capital.

Subject to regulatory approval, Bernadine will join Williams & Glyn in the autumn of 2016, where she will lead the bank’s internal audit function.

Williams & Glyn is to be formed from the sale by the Royal Bank of Scotland of around 300 branches and other business banking elements, the new bank will rekindle the Williams & Glyn name. Williams & Glyn was last seen on the high street in 1985 and the new bank will draw on a banking heritage stretching back to the 1700s.

Williams & Glyn CEO Jim Brown said: “I am delighted to welcome Bernadine to Williams & Glyn. We need the best in the business and Bernadine is just that. She brings with her a wealth of experience, built up through senior roles across a range of highly respected organisations. I am very pleased she has chosen to come on board with Williams & Glyn.”
