Skipton appoints head of corporate investments

Skipton has appointed Liz Law as its new head of corporate investments to manage any further acquisitions to the 18-company strong Skipton Group, while overseeing relationships and communication within the Group.

With an MSc from Leeds Metropolitan University, Law joined the Society in 1990, working her way up through a variety of roles, including stores supervisor and office services manager. She joined corporate investments as a project manager in August 2001.

In the last two years, Law has been involved in many projects and several acquisitions for the Group, including Direct Life & Pensions, Industrial Equipment Finance, Pearson Jones and The Private Health Partnership.

Law says: “With currently 17 subsidiaries plus the Society, the Skipton Group has shown immense growth in the past few years.

“Given the diversification within the Group, head of corporate investments is a crucial role to fill and one which is a fantastic opportunity for me personally.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my 13 years with Skipton Building Society and am obviously pleased that the Society has continued its recent trend of internal promotion to this position.”
