Tippin has occupied a number of senior executive roles at rival Lloyds, including, most recently, group director, people and productivity since 2017. She will be a member of NatWest Group’s executive committee, reporting directly to chief executive Alison Rose.
The appointment is subject to regulatory approval and an exact start date has still to be finalised.
Rose said: “I’m thrilled that Jen has agreed to join us. While right now our collective focus is on ensuring our customers and staff get the support they need in these extremely challenging circumstances, it’s important that we also look ahead.”
Tippin, who has been with Lloyds Banking Group for more than 15 years, said: “I am delighted to be joining the NatWest Group.”
