Earl Shilton Building Society welcomes new director to board

Chris Greenwell, Non-Executive Director at esbs

Leicestershire based building society esbs has welcomed Chris Greenwell to the board as a Non-Executive Director.

In his new role, Chris has been assigned to the Nominations, REMCO and RCC committees.

After a legal career spanning close to four decades in a wide range of litigation disciplines, Chris has mostly retired but has opted to remain at Gately PLC as a part-time ambassador. He is also commencing a role as an ambassador for Leicestershire insurance brokerage, Anthony James.

While transitioning into retirement Chris was inspired to apply his skill set to non-executive directorship.

With a passion for community, Chris actively supports several local charities including LOROS where he has been a trustee since 2014, and Leicestershire Wooden Spoon Society where he is a member of the committee.

“Having lived in Leicester for 35 years, one of the things that drew me to esbs is how it is an established part of the fabric of the county in much the same way LOROS is. I hope this role will align me with our community, help me stay fresh and relevant in semi-retirement and represent a conduit through which my lifetime experience can stay of use.”

Paul Tilley, Chief Executive of esbs, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Chris and his excellent skill set to the esbs team. His dedication to the local community mirrors our own ethos and we are sure he will be a fantastic contribution to the Society.”
