BSA appoints Skipton chief as its new chairman

The Building Societies Association has appointed Skipton Building Society chief executive David Cutter as its chairman for 2013/14.

Cutter takes over from Hanley Economic Building Society chief executive David Webster, who was chairman over 2012/13.

Nationwide chief executive Graham Beale takes on the role of BSA deputy chairman.

Cutter, a chartered accountant, joined Skipton as head of audit in 1993 and was appointed to the board in 2000. He became group chief executive in January 2009. 

Cutter says: “The year ahead will clearly bring challenges, whether in the form of the muted economic outlook for the UK, the remaining potential for back-wash from the eurozone or the ever growing financial services regulatory agenda. I am optimistic that the sector will continue to rise to these and any other challenges as they come our way. 

As BSA Chairman, I look forward to a year where we continue to reinforce the fact that building societies and other mutuals are very real challengers to the large Plc banks – we are open for business.”
