New company secretary appointed at Virgin Money

8th May 2012

Katie Marshall has been named as the new deputy company secretary at Virgin Money, following the departure of Jasan Fitzpatrick as legal director of the bank.

Fitzpatrick worked at Northern Rock for a decade and moved to his most recent post in January of this year after playing an instrumental role in securing its successful takeover by the growing financial services institution.

According to Stephen Pearson, Virgin Money’s first and current general counsel, Fitzpatrick made the decision because he felt that this was an appropriate moment to take some time out from his busy career.

Pearson added that he had been prepared for Fitzpatrick moving on at some point, and that he believed he was extremely proud to have seen his former employers become a private company once again under his direction.

Marshall, who was a colleague of Fitzpatrick’s at Northern Rock, began her work in one of the UK banking system’s most important lawyer jobs in late April.
