We are pleased to announce Dan Wass will be starting at the Society in September 2022
Following Gerard O’Keeffe’s decision to retire later this year as CEO of Buckinghamshire Building Society, the Board of Directors is delighted to announce the appointment of Dan Wass as CEO designate. He will join the Society in mid-September 2022.
Most recently as Director of Member Propositions, Banking, Insurance & Investments at Nationwide Building Society, and previously a managing director at Barclays UK, having held a number of senior retail banking leadership positions there, Wass brings with him a wealth of senior leadership experience and a passion for the mutual sector.
Speaking about the appointment, Dick Jenkins, Chairman at Buckinghamshire Building Society said, ‘Buckinghamshire Building Society is a strong and ambitious organisation with real momentum. This was reflected in the very impressive candidates who applied for the CEO role, but Dan was the stand-out choice for us. This is a high-profile appointment that reflects confidence and excitement about the future of our Society. Dan’s credentials speak for themselves, but we are delighted that Dan will be an inspirational leader for the great team we have and an excellent cultural fit for the Society. ’
Wass commented, ‘I’m thrilled to be joining the Buckinghamshire Building Society at such an important time. I can see that the Society has strength, real momentum and a proud heritage of serving its members and the wider Buckinghamshire community. I’m very much looking forward to meeting the Bucks team and joining in September.’
