About Me


Ruth is the Chair of the Welsh Revenue Authority and holds a portfolio of non-executive roles. With a background in financial services, regulation and governance, Ruth also has significant board experience as an independent member and chairperson of local government audit and standards boards. 

Originally from South Wales, Ruth worked for banks and building societies across the UK before joining the financial services regulator in 2006, working in operational and regulatory roles through the financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent changes in the regulatory regime. Following an international role as a head of governance for Standard Chartered Bank, Ruth returned to Neath from where she is focusing on a non-executive career with organisations that have a social purpose.
