About us Meet the Leadership Team and Trustees Stephen Thomas About my role at Westbank I joined Westbank in October 2021 as Head of Finance and Business Planning, joining the charity at a time when there are so many opportunities for the future. In September 2022 I was very pleased to be promoted to Finance Director with a seat on the Board. My stand out career moments I have previously worked in finance for an NHS charity during the pandemic, as well as for the Church of England. Prior to this I worked in Exeter, Singapore and the Falkland Islands as an Auditor. My values Finance should enable a charities vision, not restrain it. We must at all times remember that we exist to serve the local community, while acting with honesty, integrity and respect towards our service users. Personal interests Outside of work I enjoy rock climbing and going for walks around the beautiful Devon countryside with my wife. I am delighted to be working at a charity that shares my passion for helping people in the local community.
