Virgin Money creates rare female top team with new hire

(Reuters) – Virgin Money (VM.L) on Thursday appointed former HSBC (HSBA.L) executive Irene Dorner as chairwoman, creating a rare female duo at the top of one of Britain’s FTSE 350 listed companies.

Virgin Money had said in October it was in talks to hire Dorner, who will join Jayne-Anne Gadhia who is the first female CEO of a listed British bank.

Dorner joins Virgin Money’s board as chair elect and takes over from outgoing Chairman Glen Moreno on March 31.
