Mr Keith Bowran.
After training as a lawyer, Keith joined the Bank's Legal Department before moving to the Branch network where he undertook Branch manager roles in London, the Home Counties and the North East. Subsequnetly he was appointed Operations Director responsible for Mortgages and Personal Loans at Santander with Operations Sites in Teesside, Bradford, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Portsmouth in the UK.
Following recent retirement Keith has worked in the Voluntary sector including Homestart, a charity for families with young children; on the loans committee of a local Credit Union; helping to run a community choir and driving a community bus in Swaledale.
Whilst his three daughters attended a 1600 pupil comprehensive school in North Yorkshire, Keith was a parent governor there which included spells as deputy chair and chair of the personnel and disciplinary committee.
As the link governor for careers at Ormsby Academy, Keith hopes that his commercial and governor experience will assist the career aspirations of pupils at our school. He has had significant involvement in recruiting staff at all levels and understands the needs of prospective employers and therefore the vital requirement for pupils to take advantage of the time they spend at Ormesby Academy.
