Following the early retirement of two of Skiptons executive directors, the society has made several appointments.

With the society and its 16 subsidiaries, the position of group corporate development director has been created to ensure the Group remains on target for future growth. Leading in this role will be David Cutter, currently the societys operations director, who will be assisted by two group commercial directors Peter Craddock, currently the societys general manager customer services and Steve Haggerty, currently managing director of subsidiary company, Homeloan Management.

Taking over the reins from David Cutter as chairman of the societys operational board will be Richard Twigg, who will also continue in his role as finance director. Helping him will be James Mack, currently head of audit, who will become general manager finance.

Rounding up the restructure is John Gibson, who as well as retaining responsibility for the societys regulatory compliance, will take over from Peter Craddock as general manager of customer services.

John Goodfellow, chief executive of Skipton, says: The future growth plans of the society are the catalyst for these major changes at executive level. As always our focus is on delivering value to members. By utilising the skills and experience of our executive team and staff, I predict Skipton will continue its trend of profitable growth in the future.
