Ipswich Building Society becomes Suffolk Building Society
Ipswich Building Society has completed its rebranding to the Suffolk Building Society.
The Society’s rebrand includes a new intermediary website at www.suffolkforintermediaries.co.uk, which offers an improved user experience following consultation with a number of brokers.
The website includes a range of information and resources in a ‘broker toolkit’ to assist intermediaries with the name change.
Richard Norrington, CEO of Suffolk Building Society, said: “This significant milestone in the Society’s 172-year history is testament to the role of a modern mutual, as we strive for continued success in the mortgage market.
“Through our new name we recognise that our intermediaries and their clients are wider than Ipswich, but we still wanted to retain a geographic connection to the place we call home – whilst lending across England and Wales.
“Most importantly, it’s a name change but not a change in company or entity, so existing cases and clients will remain unaffected and it is very much business as usual.
“The evolution to Suffolk Building Society has been a very carefully managed and gradual process so that existing branded materials have wound down to reduce unnecessary expense and minimise our carbon footprint.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at the Society for all the hard work and dedication involved to complete the journey towards this new name and visual identity, and to members and intermediaries for their wholehearted support and enthusiasm for the rebrand.”
