HSBC branch head to become Yorkshire BS chief

Yorkshire Building Society is to appoint current HSBC head of branch network Chris Pilling as its new chief executive.

Pilling will join the society on December 31 and will take over from current chief executive Iain Cornish, who announced his intention to step down in February this year.

In 2006, Pilling joined HSBC as chief executive of First Direct and was appointed head of the bank’s branch network earlier this year.

Pilling says: “The Yorkshire has a tremendous opportunity to build on its status as an independent building society to provide a real and trusted alternative to the banks and I am very much looking forward to being a part of that.”
