THE CFO ROLE has been restructured at Santander UK as part of a boardroom reshuffle.
CFO Antonio Lorenzo steps down from the position at the end of the year to join two other Santander executives moving to Lloyds Banking Group.
Instead of a direct replacement, his duties will be split among four members of the executive committee.
Justo Gómez, until now deputy CFO of Banesto, will join Santander’s executive committee as FD, responsible for asset and liability management, economics and investor relations.
Mónica Cueva joins the company’s executive committee as financial controller, responsible for financial reporting, tax and cost management and control. She is currently financial controller for Banco Santander SA.
Committee member Alison Brittain will assume responsibility for Intermediaries in addition to her existing responsibilities as executive director, retail distribution.
Miguel-Ángel Rodríguez-Sola will be responsible for wealth management and private banking in addition to his existing responsibilities on the committee.
