New Chief Executive at Hinckley & Rugby Building Society

Hinckley & Rugby Building Society has welcomed its new Chief Executive, Colin Fyfe to his role. Previously the Chief Executive at Darlington Building Society, Colin succeeds Chris White who is retiring after 30 years at Hinckley & Rugby.

Colin, the ninth chief executive in the Hinckley & Rugby’s 153 years, said the Society will continue to evolve its mortgage lending and savings products to serve new and existing customers in its home counties and nationwide.

He said: “We will offer different types of mortgages and services that will put more members of the community onto the housing ladder and enable them to save for a purpose. Leicestershire and Warwickshire is our home patch but we are a national business that can reinvest in our heartlands, in employment, in our suppliers and in our communities.”

Colin praised the long and fruitful service of his predecessor: “I applaud Chris White’s fundamental contribution to the Society being in such good health after a tumultuous period for financial services. He’s done a fantastic job of navigating the Society to this point.

“Now we are moving into the next stage of the evolution. It’s about taking the Society forward, to provide the right services for our local and national customer base. The Hinckley & Rugby board is ambitious, forward looking and that’s what appealed to me.

“Our mutuality provides us with a deep connection to our members – our savers and our borrowers – and our branch network means we meet them daily face to face. We can listen to them, understand and, thanks to being a mutual, deliver what they want.”

Hinckley & Rugby chairman Colin Franklin said: “It is great to welcome Colin Fyfe to the Society. We look forward to this next chapter in our long history of serving our members, helping them to save and to buy their homes.

“With our new Chief Executive on board, his vision and experience will enable us to build on the sterling work of Chris White’s decade in the role.”
