New Head of Software Delivery joins Leeds Building Society

Leeds Building Society has appointed Paul Hodgson as its new Head of Software Delivery to support the Society’s ongoing digital strategy.

Paul has a background in transforming organisational processes to meet the evolving needs and changing expectations of a digital audience.

He has more than 20 years’ experience within software development and service operations, most recently delivering large-scale video services for companies such as Channel 4, BskyB and Virgin Media.

Commenting on his appointment, Paul said: “Leeds Building Society is a successful independent building society with a commitment to its digital strategy. I feel I will bring a lot of experience into the organisation and help the organisation reach its goals in this area.

“I’m looking forward to using my skillset and experience to deliver projects and services that help members rather than reward shareholders.”

In his role at Head of Software Delivery Paul will be responsible for providing software solutions to improve the experience of members and colleagues alike.

Welcoming Paul to the Society, Chief Information Officer Tom Clark, said: “We know that more and more of our members are using new channels to interact with us. We’re committed to delivering our digital strategy to support them do business with us at a time that suits them.

“Paul’s appointment illustrates this and his appointment will ensure the Society continues to develop and enhance the experience members have when interacting with Leeds Building Society.

"Paul is an experienced operator and one who we’re sure will hit the ground running and make a long-term contribution to our ongoing digital strategy, significantly benefitting our members and colleagues."
