Hanley Economic Building Society has made a double appointment to its senior leadership team and moved to strengthen its board.

The society has appointed Jenny Jones as head of finance and Anna Guy as head of risk. Meanwhile, Ian Henley and Liz Whitfield join the board.

Jones joined Hanley Economic BS as a management accountant in January 2017. She was promoted to head of finance following Larne Barlow’s progression to finance director. She will be undertaking a strategic role to help ensure the society is performing to the best of its ability whilst operating within full regulatory guidelines.

Guy will lead the oversight on risk, compliance, data protection and financial crime. Her past experience includes a role within treasury compliance at Britannia, assurance manager for Co-Op Bank and her most recent position was as head of risk and compliance at Stafford Railway Building Society.

Henley has become chair of Hanley’s risk committee and brings 40 years of financial services experience to the role and Whitfield, a chartered accountant, will support its remuneration and audit & compliance committees.

Mark Selby (pictured), CEO at Hanley Economic Building Society, said: “The Society is going through a very exciting period of change as we develop areas such as new technologies, so our latest additions are a natural extension of how we are evolving as a business.

“Our people really are a key differentiator and, as a forward-thinking building society, we will continue to invest and grow our team in the right way to better support and service the ever-changing needs of our customer base. Both from a direct and intermediary perspective.”
