Woodford governance chair joins Charles Stanley board

Charles Stanley has announced the appointment of Marcia Campbell, who currently serves as chair of the oversight committee at Woodford Investment Management, to its board of directors.

Campbell was formerly chief executive for Asia Pacific at Standard Life.

Alongside Woodford, Campbell also sits on boards at Sainsburys Bank, Woodford Investment Management and Murray International Trust. She is also a member of Aviva’s independent governance committee.

She became chair of the oversight committee at Woodford last year, replacing Mary Reilly.

Charles Stanley chairman David Howard says Campbell offers the board a “strong voice informed by her years of investment management experience, her understanding of Governance and her roles on other Boards”.  

“We welcome her guidance as we continue to grow our revenue, deliver valued service to clients and move closer to our goal of being the UK’s most significant wealth manager by 2020.”

Her appointment is subject to regulatory approval.
