National role for The Cambridge's Chief Executive

4 May 2017 • Corporate

The Cambridge Building Society’s Chief Executive has been elected Deputy Chairman of the Building Societies Association.

Stephen Mitcham will be in the role for a year before taking over the mantle of Chairman from West Bromwich Building Society’s Chief Executive Jonathan Westhoff in 2018.

The Building Societies Association (BSA) is the voice for building societies representing their interests to audiences including regulators, the Government, Bank of England and the media. The BSA also provides information to building societies to help them run their businesses.

Stephen Mitcham joined The Cambridge Building Society as a Customer Accounts Manager in 1990 and was appointed Chief Executive in 2007. His career in financial services began at Lloyds Bank moving on to the Nationwide Building Society in 1987 where he spent three years as a branch manager.

He said: “It’s a pleasure to take on this role and it will certainly complement my position at The Cambridge.

“The BSA is a very important body in our industry and does a great job of championing us. I plan to continue to provide any support needed for this work to continue.”
