Leek United Building Society has confirmed that chief executive Kevin Wilson (pictured above) will be retiring after 24 years with the company.

Kevin will remain in his post until the end of 2018 and the society has already begun the search for his successor.

Members of the building society were informed of Kevin’s departure at Leek United’s AGM, at which the society reported strong business results for 2017.

“My time with Leek United has been the highlight of my career in financial services, and I am very proud to be preparing to ‘hand over the reins’ at a time when the society is in such a robust financial position, with a strong foundation for continued growth and success,” said Kevin.

He joined Leek United in 1994 as a financial services manager, before being appointed to the board in 1998, then taking over as chief executive in 2005.

“I would like to express my gratitude to the fantastic colleagues, both past and present, with whom I have had the pleasure of working, and I will be leaving the society with many great memories and highlights,” added Kevin. 

“Together, we have ensured that Leek United has continued to go from strength to strength.”

Rachel Court, chair of the society, added: “Under Kevin’s leadership, Leek United has delivered consistently strong financial results and excellent customer service, year-on-year, and the board is extremely grateful to Kevin for the dedication and enthusiasm he has shown throughout this very successful period for the society.

“While he will continue to lead Leek United until the end of this year, I would, nevertheless, like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin on behalf of the board, our staff and members for his fantastic contribution.”
