YORKSHIRE Building Society has appointed former Chelsea Building Society director Mark Jenkins to its general management team.
Mr Jenkins (pictured), 47, joined Chelsea Building Society in October, 2009, as strategy and planning director and played a key role in the merger process of the Chelsea and the Yorkshire.
Before that, he was at Nationwide Building Society for 15 years where he held a variety of positions, including managing director of Nationwide Life and Unit Trust Managers, divisional director commercial, responsible for Nationwide’s £21bn commercial mortgage book and finance director at a number of the building society’s subsidiaries.
Earlier, the Yorkshire, which has its roots in Huddersfield, named Robin Churchouse as its new finance director.
Mr Churchouse, 44, will take up the post on June 1 in succession to Andrew Gosling, who is retiring as finance director after nine years in the role.
Mr Churchouse joined the Bradford-based society in July, 2004, as head of finance after gaining wide experience with a number of financial services organisations. He was appointed general manager for risk and planning in 2006.
Iain Cornish, chief executive of the Yorkshire, said: “Robin has made a significant contribution to managing the risks and planning the society’s future strategy during a period of great change for the organisation.
“His knowledge of the society and experience in finance, risk management and strategic planning equip him to be an excellent finance director.”
