Nottingham strengthens board

Andrew Neden joined the board on 17 September and Guy Thomas is set to join the board this month.

Neden has recently retired as a partner at KPMG following a 30 year career which has included roles in audit, consulting, head of financial sector transaction services and global chief operating officer – KPMG Financial Services.

He also holds a number of directorships: chair of the audit committee at the Wesleyan Assurance Society and at trusts and charities including chair of the audit committee for The Prince of Wales Youth Business International.

Thomas will be joining the board following a successful career in the building society sector where he recently retired as a director of the principality building society, having held a number of roles including group finance director, group COO, MD of nemo personal finance and chairman of Peter Alan Estate Agency. Prior to that Guy held senior positions at the Staffordshire Building Society and Birmingham Midshires.

Nottingham chairman John Edwards said: “We are delighted to welcome Andrew and Guy to our board. They join us at a very exciting time for The Nottingham when our unique advice and service led mutual proposition is increasing in popularity with our customers.

“This is enabling us to significantly grow and expand the reach of the Society. The combined experiences and skills that Andrew and Guy bring to the board are the ideal blend of support and challenge to our developing strategy.

“The board evolves along with the Society and its strategy, with 2015 marking a further transition in our development, following the retirement of the previous chairman, David Thompson in May of this year.

“The Society can look forward to the future, confident that it continues to strengthen as it focuses on serving its members with its unique brand of service and advice.”
