Leek United’s chief executive to retire
Leek United chief executive Kevin Wilson (pictured) is set for retirement after 24 years with the society.
Wilson will retire at the end of the year, with Leek saying a ‘rigorous selection process’ has begun for his successor.
He said: “My time with Leek United has been the highlight of my career in financial services, and I am very proud to be preparing to ‘hand over the reins’ at a time when the society is in such a robust financial position, with a strong foundation for continued growth and success.
“I would like to express my gratitude to the fantastic colleagues, both past and present, with whom I have had the pleasure of working, and I will be leaving the Society with many great memories and highlights.
“Together, we have ensured that Leek United has continued to go from strength to strength.”
Wilson originally joined the society as financial services manager in 1994, before being appointed to the society’s board in 1998 and taking over as chief executive in 2005.
Rachel Court, chairman of Leek United, said: “Under Kevin’s leadership, Leek United has delivered consistently strong financial results and excellent customer service, year on year, and the board is extremely grateful to Kevin for the dedication and enthusiasm he has shown throughout this very successful period for the society.
“Whilst he will continue to lead Leek United until the end of this year, I would, nevertheless, like to take this opportunity to thank Kevin on behalf of the board, our staff and members for his fantastic contribution.”
