Paul Lyman, CEO Secure Trust Bank

It seems perfectly natural to me that as an employer I should try to help both men and women to progress their careers to the fullest extent possible. When the time comes for my daughter and son to go to work I would like to think that any success they enjoy is down to their work ethic, ambition and ability rather than gender or any other characteristic. I employ lots of parents, daughters and sons so I treat them as I would want another employer to treat my own children.

Paul Lynam joined Secure Trust Bank as Chief Executive Officer in September 2010, having spent 22 years working for NatWest and RBS.
