Skipton appoints head of finance

Skipton has promoted Fraser McNeill, previously a risk manager to its head of finance.

McNeill will now be responsible for the running of the finance department and managing all of the societys current financial activities.

McNeill was previously responsible for building and maintaining the risk management framework throughout the Skipton Group. He spent three years in this role before racing ahead to his new position in finance.

McNeill says: I am really looking forward to my new role in finance, as its a great opportunity for me to return the area in which I originally qualified in, which was accountancy.

I am joining a fantastic department and cant wait to get stuck in to my new challenge.

The society is well known as being a great employer and so I was keen to stay at Skipton, as I feel in my opinion it is the epitome of a modern mutual.
