Leicestershire-based building society esbs has appointed Debbie Holmes as business development manager, a newly created position.
Holmes (pictured) will be reporting into Richard Carson, business development and marketing manager.
Holmes joins esbs from Coventry Building Society where she held a variety of in-branch and head office roles, most recently within the intermediary space.
Holmes said: “I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to join esbs as its business development manager.
“Given the level of experience I have in the industry, I felt that the society would be right for me, especially as its values align with my own.
“I am looking forward to working for a regional building society where I am able to influence decisions and be a part of new projects and propositions.
“I’m very much a people person, so the chance to work closely with our intermediaries is the perfect fit.”
Paul Tilley, chief executive of esbs, added: “I would like to wish Debbie a very warm welcome to the team.
“She brings an impressive range of experience working both within sales and finance, and I am confident that her talents will continue to flourish with us here at esbs.”
