Currently, Lustman serves as vice chair of the Court and Remuneration Committee, chair at Glasgow Caledonian University, and chair of St Luke’s Hospice (Harrow and Brent).
She also supports CEOs and senior leaders in an advisory capacity.

The appointment as chair of the group’s remuneration committee is subject to FCA approval.
