North-East building society chief to step down
DAVID DODD, the chief executive at Darlington Building Society, has announced that he plans to retire in September 2014.
Mr Dodd, 56, joined Darlington Building Society in 1998 and has been chief executive since 2009.
He has spent all his working life in the mutual sector and has been instrumental in leading Darlington Building Society through difficult economic times.
James Ramsbotham, the chairman of Darlington Building Society, said: “The board of Darlington Building Society owes David a huge debt of gratitude for the diligent, skilled and conscientious way he has led the Society over the past few years and he will be greatly missed when he retires.”
He added: “Thanks to the efforts of David and his executive team, Darlington Building Society members can look forward to a bright future. Although David will not be leaving for some time yet plans are already in place to recruit his successor.
"When David finally does leave late next year the Society’s board wish him a long and happy retirement”.
A chartered banker and a chartered human resources professional with an MBA from the Open University, Mr Dodd is also on the National Council of the Building Societies Association.
