The Scottish Building Society has appointed banking veteran Andrew Hastings as a non-executive director.
Hastings’ career began at Royal Bank of Scotland in 1985 and after a spell at BNP Paribas Ireland he went on to lead Barclays Bank Ireland as its chief executive for four years.
His non-executive portfolio includes Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board, Pepper Finance Corporation and Elavon Financial Services DAC.
Hastings, from Maybole, South Ayrshire, said: “I am excited to join the board of such a historical and innovative financial service provider like Scottish Building Society.
“As the society recently welcomed Paul Denton as the new chief executive, I feel we are at the start of an exciting era and I am greatly looking forward to being a part of it.”
Chairman Raymond Abbott said: “We are pleased to welcome Andrew on to the board. Andrew has significant knowledge of the industry and his extensive skillset and experience will make him an excellent asset.”
