Our Trustees

Sophie Gillibert (Chair)

Area of expertise: Financial management

Background: 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 bank regulatory operations. She is currently Chief of Staff for the Europe Transformation Programme at HSBC.

Sophie was appointed Treasurer for RedR in April 2020 and, having worked with the CEO and fellow trustees during this year’s challenging environment, Sophie has now been appointed as RedR UK’s Chair at the recent AGM. 

Sophie brings oversight and governance experience from her background in banking to enable the delivery of RedR’s mission: to optimise capacity-building to drive effective humanitarian action.

Sophie holds an MSc. in Finance from Strathclyde University and became a chartered accountant while starting her career with CitiGroup.

Sophie is thrilled to be joining the RedR UK team: "I’m delighted to be appointed Chair of RedR, joining at a critical time when both outside events and internal transformation are creating some pressure on team, board and finances. There is so much potential in RedR; it’s very exciting to be part of shaping a revived, dynamic and forward looking charity which can give so much where the needs are."
