Sanjay Nair is a Chartered Accountant and Management Accountant with 28 years of experience in the banking and financial services industry. He is currently the Head of Finance for Commercial Banking in HSBC, UK (one of the largest single businesses in the HSBC Group) and serves as director on the Board of HSBC Equipment Finance Limited. He has previously worked for GE in varied leadership roles and S&P as a banking analyst.

In a career spanning stints in Asia and Europe, he has successfully discharged Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer roles in the HSBC Group.

He has served on Central Bank and Regulator Committees in India and Jersey.

Sanjay serves as Chairman on Cluster Board at Reach2, the largest primary school Academy Trust in England, in line with his interest in supporting children’s education. He has had proximate family experience in observing the challenges that disabled children and their parents face and is committed to helping alleviate them.

Stephen Unwin, KIDS Chairman said:

“I’m so pleased to welcome Sanjay Nair to the Board of KIDS. He brings an incredible breadth and depth of financial expertise, as well as strategic vision and is driven by personal commitment to the cause of disabled children, young people and their families. I’m greatly looking forward to working with him and I know he will help KIDS go from strength to strength. I am deeply grateful to Chris Stefani for his commitment and service to KIDS as Trustee and Treasurer for nine years. Thanks also to Society for assisting us in the search.”
