Mansfield Building Society has appointed Gev Lynott as its new chief executive.
Lynott replaces Nigel Quinton, who has left the society to take over as chief executive at Furness Building Society.
He is a qualified accountant who was previously financial services director at Asda, an executive director at Marks and Spencer and has held senior positions with National & Provincial Building Society.
Lynott says: “It is an honour to be here and I will be working closely with my new colleagues to ensure that the Mansfield continues as a successful, independent mutual building society. That is what we do and that is clearly what we are good at. Having won awards for best local building society, I see no reason to fundamentally change a successful, profitable and well run operation.”
