Ipswich Building Society has announced the appointment of existing Non-Executive Director Alan Harris as Chairman, effective 1st December 2017, following the retirement of Sarah Evans who joined the Board in 2008 and has been in the chair since 2013.

The Society has also appointed Steve Liddell, a Financial Services Partner at Mazars, as Non-Executive Director.

Alan Harris is a Chartered Insurer and Fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute. He was previously Chief Executive at Avon Insurance PLC and holds an MBA from City University Business School. In addition to his new role at Ipswich Building Society, Alan holds non-executive roles with three Aegon companies and is a Governor and Director of Prince Henry’s High School Academy Trust.

Steve Liddell will be appointed to the Board as a Non-Executive Director with effect from 30th November 2017. Steve, who lives in Woodbridge, has extensive experience in audit and transactions services work where his clients have included large insurance brokers and underwriters both in the UK and internationally.

Richard Norrington, CEO at Ipswich Building Society, commented: “We are thankful to Sarah Evans for her invaluable contribution to the Society over the last nine years. Sarah led the process in actively strengthening the Board during her time as Chairman, as well as overseeing a complete IT migration and guiding our pioneering involvement in assisting Mortgage Misfits.

“We are pleased to welcome Alan Harris as our new Chairman and are confident that, under his leadership, the Board will continue to deliver significant value for our members.

“We are also pleased to welcome Steve Liddell to the Society as Non-Executive Director. His skills and experience in audit and transaction advisory work will be invaluable as we continue to adapt to changing regulation and market conditions while providing members excellent service and returns.”
