Swansea Building Society board member retires after long standing service

The Deputy Chief Executive of Swansea Building Society, Neil Rosser, is retiring after 36 years with the Society.

Rosser joined the Society in 1983 and was appointed to its board in 2001. His main responsibilities included the oversight of operational risk, including responsibility for identification, measurement and reporting of current and emerging risks. He also oversaw the compliance function to ensure compliance arrangements regarding all relevant statutes, regulations and codes of practice. He additionally chaired the Society’s Conduct Committee.

As a part of the Society for the past 36 years, Rosser has played a central role in the Society’s continued success. The Society has reached record-breaking highs in terms of its total assets, and mortgage and savings balances. In 2018, the Society celebrated the largest single year of growth on both sides of its balance sheet in its history.

Rosser has also witnessed the expansion of the Society’s branch network during his years in service, with new branches in Carmarthen and Cowbridge opening over the past three years, adding to the Society’s existing branches in Swansea and Mumbles.

Alun Williams, Chief Executive of Swansea Building Society, said:

“Having been a part of Swansea Building Society for the last 36 years, the dedication Neil has given to our organisation has been integral to its success. His proficiency in operational risk and compliance is exceptional and has been of utmost value to the Society. I have no doubt he will remain a highly respected associate of the Society and we thank him for his long service.”

Neil Rosser, former Deputy Chief Executive at Swansea Building Society, added:

“I have had the honour of watching the Society develop and grow over many years but one thing that has remained the same is its focus on providing an exceptional service to its members. I am thankful for my time contributing to the Society and its expert board and confident it will prosper in the future.”
