Leek United Building Society has appointed Andrew Morris (pictured above) as its new finance director.
Andrew has over 20 years of experience in financial services and is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Accountants in England and Wales.
He most recently worked for three years as head of finance business partnering at Nationwide Building Society.
Prior to this, he spent over 12 years in a number of positions with the RBS Group, including four years as CFO and COO of Middle East and Africa, based in Dubai, and as head of strategic cost management at Coutts private bank.
A qualified accountant, Andrew gained a BA in history and archaeology from the University of Exeter, before going on to read medieval history at Cambridge.
Most recently he obtained an MBA from the London Business School.
“In many ways, there are parallels with my studies and the work I [do now]: it's about assimilating and making sense of a vast amount of data, and condensing it down to what really matters and being able to effectively communicate those messages,” said Andrew.
“I am very much looking forward to being a part of the executive team, helping to make the decisions that drive the society forward and giving something back to the local community at the same time.”
