New legal appointment at Cheltenham & Gloucester

Cheltenham & Gloucester has announced the appointment of Noel Riossi to the position of commercial lawyer.

Riossi joins C&G&#39s in-house legal team, where his main responsibilities will include the negotiation and approval of external contracts, data protection and property issues.

After qualifying in 1987, Riossi spent two years in private practice in the Midlands before moving to Gloucestershire and taking an in-house position with the Nationwide Building Society as head of litigation in 1992.

Riossi cites the lengthy daily commute from the Forest of Dean to Swindon as a big factor in the switch, saying: “I am looking forward not only to the new challenges that my role with C&G will present, but I am also hoping that I will be able to spend more time with my wife and CD collection and perhaps even my beloved Everton FC.”
