Nottingham Building Society's Board is pleased to announce that Robin Ashton has been appointed to its Board of Directors as a Non-Executive Director with effect from 1 December 2023.
Robin was previously Chair of the Leeds Building Society for over seven years. He brings a wealth of executive and non-executive experience to The Nottingham. He has been serving as Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Audit & Risk Committee at Domestic & General Group since 2019 where he has overseen a period of expansion and digital transformation.
His distinguished career also includes Senior Independent Director and Chair of the Remuneration Committee at Shawbrook Group plc between 2011 and 2020 during which he oversaw a period of sustained growth. As Chair at Leeds Building Society between 2013 and 2020 assets increased significantly at the same time as strategic investments in technology and digital services.

The Society has a rich heritage and a strong foundation to grow. I look forward to working with Andrew, CEO Sue Hayes and the team to help deliver their vision of ensuring home ownership is achievable for today's borrowers."
