SKIPTON Building Society has announced the appointment of Philip Moore as non-executive director.

He has over 35 years of experience in his international financial services career and joins both Board Audit and Risk Committees, replacing Denise Cockram, who will be retiring from her role after five years.

David Cutter, Skipton’s Group Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome Philip to the Board of the Society as a non-executive director. As a mutual, we are run by our Board of Directors, who take on the responsibility of deciding the Society’s strategy. Philip brings to the table a great breadth of experience and knowledge which will be a valuable asset to the Society.”

Philip said: “I’m looking forward to really getting stuck into my new role at Skipton, as I was attracted to its strong mutual values, combined with a clear commercial purpose. These attributes have made it what it is today: a well-run, financially strong, customer-focused organisation."
