Conroy said: “I’m delighted to be joining such an historic, well-respected and financially resilient organisation.
“Recent weeks and months have posed significant challenges across the financial services sector, but as a future-facing and secure business, we’re continuing to support our members and colleagues through this difficult period.
“I’ve had the warmest possible reception since I started as interim CFO here in June last year, and colleagues across the business have demonstrated incredible spirit, dedication and professionalism to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our members.”
Richard Fearon, chief executive officer at Leeds Building Society, said: “Andrew’s extensive experience and achievements within financial services mean that he will make an excellent contribution to our senior team.
“In the time he has been with the society as our interim CFO, he has already had a tremendously positive impact on all our teams, so I’m very pleased that we can formally confirm his appointment.”
