I am delighted to welcome Alasdair. His strong appreciation of our mutual values, together with his management skills, strategic outlook and extensive technical expertise in finance, will ensure we remain financially sustainable and continue to deliver long-term value to existing and future members.
Alasdair Lenman said:
I’m very pleased to be joining Yorkshire Building Society at such an exciting time. I’m looking forward to contributing to the Society’s focus on its core mortgages and savings markets and driving growth through the creation of sustainable value for its members.
