Furness Building Society has made another new appointment, this time announcing Philip McLelland as non-executive director.
McLelland, a commercial finance director with considerable experience and expertise in mortgages and savings, will join Furness's board to try and drive the Society's work forward.
McLelland began his career in the building society sector and his current full-time job is finance director at Provident Financial, where he has responsibility for leading the firm's Finance Function. He's also a qualified management accountant.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Phillip as a non-executive director to the Society’s Board,” Colin Millar, Furness's Chairman, commented.
“As finance director for UKAR and now Provident Financial, Phillip brings with him a good commercial sense and track record, with executive and board level experience across mortgages and savings and consumer finance and we look forward to working with him to drive the Society forward.”
McLelland, who lives and works in Yorkshire, said of his new role: “I am looking forward to working with the Board at Furness Building Society and developing further an already financially strong, independent and mutual Society – it is after all where my career started, in the building society sector."
