West Brom to appoint new chief executive

West Bromwich Building Society will have a new chief executive next month.

Chief executive designate Stephen Karle takes over the reigns from the retiring current chief executive Andrew Messenger on Sunday October 1, 2006.

Karle joined West Brom in 1995 as secretary to the society, having previously worked as a solicitor. He was appointed to the board in 2000.

West Brom chairman Dr Brian Woods-Scawen says: “Stephen Karle is the ideal individual to lead the West Brom. His expertise and experience, allied to a track record of delivering outstanding results, together with his gift for getting the best out of people, make him the person to help sustain a record of success that has made the wider world sit up and take notice of the West Brom. I look forward greatly to working with him.”
