The London-based operation of Goldman Sachs has appointed its first female directors amid an intensifying Government-backed push to tackle the City's stark gender imbalance.
Sky News reports they have learnt that Goldman Sachs International (GSI) has recruited Susan Kilsby, a former investment banker who chairs the FTSE-100 pharmaceuticals group Shire, as a non-executive director.
Isabelle Ealet, global-co-head of the Wall Street bank’s securities division, has been named an executive director of the GSI board, alongside the co-chief executives, Richard Gnodde and Michael Sherwood.
Mrs Kilsby, a US citizen, is one of the City's most senior women, having had a long career at Credit Suisse and a string of other international banks, while Ms Ealet is a recipient of France's Legion d'Honneur, one of the country's highest civilian honours.
