Nationwide Building Society has appointed Alan Keir as an independent non-executive director.
Keir is a former group managing director and chief executive officer EMEA at HSBC. He is currently a non-executive director on the boards of Majid Al Futtaim and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, and was previously a NED at HSBC Bank UK.
Keir will assume the role of board risk committee chair in July, subject to regulatory approval.
Kevin Parry, Nationwide’s chair, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Alan to the Nationwide board. Alan’s appointment will broaden the banking experience on the Nationwide board, and he has first-hand experience of the risks to be managed and the opportunities in the UK. I anticipate his strategic insights and wide experiences of different business models will contribute to enhancing the service that we provide to our members.”
