Leeds appoints non-executive directors

Leeds has appointed Ian Robertson and Bob Stott as non-executive directors of the society with immediate effect.

Robertson and Stott join the board, which currently consists of three executive directors and six non-executive directors under the leadership of chairman, Robin Smith.

Robertson, who is a qualified accountant, is currently a member of the audit advisory board to the Scottish Parliament Corporate Body and a non-executive director of the Homes and Communities Agency.

He was group CEO of Wilson Bowden Plc house builders and property developers until June last year, when it was sold to Barratts. He was previously the Financial Controller for Northern Foods and Terry’s of York.

Robertson says: “I am very pleased to join the board of Leeds, which operates a very successful, sustainable business model. The society is an independent member owned business with a strong well-capitalised balance sheet and I look forward to using my expertise to add value to the members and staff of this long established and successful organisation.”
