We were deeply saddened to learn that on Wednesday 15 June, our Vice Chair and Treasury Committee Chair, Tania Brisby passed away following a serious illness.
Tania joined the MTVH Board in 2020. She was an extremely active Board member who devoted enormous energy to the role. Tania was regarded with huge respect and affection by all who worked with her at MTVH. We were privileged to benefit from Tania’s deep insight, a wealth of sound advice and her significant experience in a variety of high-level roles across many sectors.
Chair of MTVH Althea Efunshile said “We will miss Tania enormously. She was astute, tireless, independently minded, and always thinking about what was best for our business and our customers. I will miss her warmth and her sense of humour.”
Tania had an impressive background in financial services and investment banking at organisations such as NatWest Markets, Deutsche Bank and Samuel Montagu (now HSBC). Her extensive Board leadership roles included a non-executive director of the Wesleyan Assurance Society and she spent nine years as a non-executive with Clarion Housing Group and Circle Housing Group.
Prior to that, Tania was Director of Cardew Group, a strategic financial and public relations consultancy, and ran her own corporate advisory practice specialising in emerging markets.
In the public sector, Tania advised the NHS on commercial dispute resolution. She was also seconded to manage a European Commission restructuring and privatisation programme. Tania was a Tribunal Panel member on disciplinary hearings for the Financial Reporting Council. She also found time to stand as both a Parliamentary and local council candidate.
Tania made an important contribution to the work of so many organisations and causes. We are honoured to have been among them. She will be greatly missed. MTVH extends heartfelt condolences to Tania’s husband Julian and their two sons at this difficult time.
