Teachers Building Society has appointed Simon Beresford as chief executive.
Beresford (pictured) has taken over from interim chief executive Dean Fensome, who is finance director at the society.
Beresford was previously managing director of BlackRock Retail, while he has held senior positions at Nationwide, including branch network director, managing director of personal loans and head of mortgage administration.
He said: “It is a privilege to be appointed to the role of chief executive at Teachers Building Society.
“I believe the society is very well placed to thrive and grow by helping more teachers to own their homes.
“We offer a distinctive mix of deep sector expertise and a track record of personal service; delivered by a team who are passionate about their customers.”
Fensome had stepped in after CEO James Bawa left to take over the same role at Monmouthshire Building Society in November.
