Yorkshire Building Society has appointed Dina Matta (pictured) to its board as non-executive director.

Matta has more than 25 years’ experience in senior management roles in relation to transformation and technological innovation, working across a variety of industries both in Europe and the US.

She has extensive experience in leading change projects, most recently for the Dutch multi-national banking business ING Group as head of global transformation, and group transformation director for BT Group plc.

Gordon Ireland, non-executive director of Yorkshire Building Society, is set to retire from the board after its Annual General Meeting.

Following Ireland’s retirement and Matta’s appointment, female representation on the society’s board has increased to 30%.

John Heaps, chairman of Yorkshire Building Society, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Dina to the board.

“Her extensive experience in change and transformation space, which is a key focus for the society over the next few years, as well as her senior leadership skills, make Dina a valuable addition to the board.

“I’d like to extend my most sincere thanks to Gordon, who has provided valuable counsel throughout his six years on the board and has served the Audit and Risk Committees with considerable distinction. I wish him well for the future.”

Matta added: “I’m pleased to be joining Yorkshire Building Society at such an exciting and pivotal time in their transformation journey.

“I’m very much looking forward to working with the board, the senior leadership team and colleagues as the digital and change programmes progress.”
