Gillian Austin King (Dn 85-92) works in The City as Senior Programme Manager for HSBC.

On leaving Rossall, Gillian attended Durham University before joining PricewaterhouseCoopers in their Financial Services Division. Gillian then moved into the banking sector where she has spent most of her career working within management or consultancy roles.  She is currently working for HSBC and was recently promoted from European Head of Programme and Project Audit to Senior Programme Manager.

Gillian is a chartered accountant, a chartered banker and a member of the CISI, with MBAs in both Banking and Finance and Degrees in Economics and Law.

We will be welcoming Gillian back to Rossall next month to give a Guest Lecture during OR Weekend on the 22nd April. Her topic will be ‘BREXIT and Trump; a return to protectionism and populism’. A number of GCSE and A Level students have also been invited to attend this exciting session to find out more about this very current topic.
