Sophie Gillibert (Chair)

Area of expertise: Financial management


Sophie has worked in various top-ten financial institutions in the City in multiple areas - from financial management to project management and, in the last few years, driving operational performance within banking operations. Sophie holds an MSc. in Finance from Strathclyde University and became a chartered accountant while starting her career with CitiGroup. She recently managed large transformation programmes at HSBC and now leads the Consumer Duty programme at NatWest. 

Sophie was appointed Treasurer for RedR in April 2020, and subsequently appointed as RedR UK’s Chair. 

Sophie brings oversight and governance experience from her background in financial services to enable the delivery of RedR’s mission: to optimise capacity-building to drive effective humanitarian action. She says, "it is very exciting to be part of shaping a revived, dynamic and forward-looking charity which can give so much where the needs are".
