Ruth worked in business banking for over 30 years. She was a business manager in local branches, followed by roles in head office, including senior management roles. After 30 years in banking, I joined forces with a colleague to create a business, working with SMEs in an FD role, ensuring they have financial disciplines in place to prepare them for profitable and controlled business growth.  Having decided to step back and slow my pace of life, I now work part time with Silverside Protection and Mortgages Ltd and, when not working, enjoy spending time with my family, friends and garden!
