Hinckley & Rugby Building Society has appointed Colin Fyfe (pictured above) as its new chief executive.
He joins from Darlington Building Society, where he held the post of CEO for over four years.
Colin previously served at Dundas Fyfe Consultants, Clydesdale Bank, National Australia Bank and Yorkshire Bank.
He succeeds Chris White, who is retiring after 30 years at the building society.
Colin said that the society would continue to evolve its mortgage lending and saving products to serve new and existing customers.
“We will offer different types of mortgages and services that will put more members of the community on to the housing ladder and enable them to save for a purpose.
“Leicestershire and Warwickshire is our home patch, but we are a national business that can reinvest in our heartlands, in employment, in our suppliers and in our communities.”
Colin Franklin, chairman at Hinckley & Rugby, added: “It is great to welcome Colin Fyfe to the society.
“We look forward to this next chapter in our long history of serving our members, helping them to save and to buy their homes.
“With our new chief executive on board, his vision and experience will enable us to build on the sterling work of Chris White’s decade in the role.”
