Michael Thomas



I’ve been working as a Non-Executive Director for AST for nearly 10 years. During that time, I’ve given advice and support in many areas including strategy, finance and human resources as well as providing expertise in financial services and financial reporting, both translation specialisms in which AST excels.

My career has spanned roles in banking, corporate treasury, management consultancy and financial reporting. I’m a qualified treasurer and chartered accountant. My previous roles included Directorships at Deloitte, West LB, Alliance & Leicester, AIB UK and Santander UK.

Throughout my time at AST, I have been impressed with how the company has remained focused on its core cultural values: outstanding service, delivery excellence and a commitment to building strong long-term client relationships.  These values remain critical to AST’s success and I am pleased to confirm they are as central to the company’s ethos now as they have ever been.
