Hinckley & Rugby BS recruits ex-Coventry chief as non-exec


Hinckley & Rugby Building Society has brought in Colin Franklin as a non-executive director.

Franklin, who has worked in building societies for the past 42 years, was most recently interim chief executive of Coventry Building Society before leaving the mutual in December. He was on gardening leave until mid-June.

Hinckley chief executive Chris White says: “Colin is a very welcome addition to the board. He has accumulated vast experience in financial services over the many years he helped lead the UK’s third largest society.

“His achievements are recognised throughout the building society sector. He has a strong track record in corporate governance and risk, plus broad knowledge of working with the regulators. We are very pleased to welcome him to the board.”

Franklin says: “I am very pleased to join a mutual with the pedigree of Hinckley & Rugby, where there is so much focus on its members. I look forward to contributing to its ongoing success.”
