Market Harborough appoints new CEO

Market Harborough has appointed Mark Robinson as its new CEO, replacing Philip Dearing who announced his departure in February to join Mutual One.

Robinson comes from rival society Cumberland where he was a general manager. Trained as a chartered surveyor, Market Harborough describes him as having “a substantial and varied career” in financial services, having previously worked for Abbey and Birmingham Midshires.

Dearing announced his departure in February, and in July he is to join the Skipton-owned outsourcing firm for mutuals, having worked for 12 years at Market Harborough. He himself was replacing Barry Meeks who left Mutual One to head up the Skipton-owned Pink Home Loans.

Married with two children, the 50-year old Robinson will be relocating to the Harborough area next year.
