Yorkshire Building Society appoints Dina Matta as Non-Executive Director

Yorkshire Building Society has announced that Dina Matta has joined its Board as Non-Executive Director.

Dina 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. She was also previously Group Transformation Director for BT Group plc.

She has joined the Board with effect from 27 April 2021. Non-Executive Director Gordon Ireland will retire from the Board after the Annual General Meeting on the same date.

Following Gordon’s retirement and Dina’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.”

Dina said:

“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.”
