SKIPTON BUILDING SOCIETY has poached Ashraf Piranie from a Midlands-based rival to take up the role of group finance director.

Piranie, currently deputy chief executive and FD at Nottingham Building Society, will be heading up the M1 to Skipton after seven years at the mutual, to start his new role in March 2015.

The ACCA member was previously joint managing director and finance director at the start-up Islamic Bank of Britain, and prior to that was at Alliance & Leicester, latterly as director of finance.

David Marlow Nottingham Building Society CEO said: “I would like to thank Ash for his outstanding contribution to the society over the past seven years and wish him the very best for the future. We have exciting plans for the future and will appoint a successor to develop and build on this success.”
