Tipton & Coseley Building Society appoints new CEO  

19th June 2023

Tipton & Coseley Building Society have announced that Adam Evetts will become the mutual’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) early next year.

The Building Society has announced that Richard Newton will be stepping down as its Chief Executive Officer, after 10 years in the role and after 32 years total service to the Society. He will be succeeded, subject to regulatory approval, by Adam Evetts currently the Society’s Risk & Compliance Director.

Jeremy Cross, the Society’s Board Chair, said: “After 32 years exemplary service, the Board was naturally disappointed to hear of Richard’s decision to step down as Chief Executive of the Society, but fully understand that it is an entirely personal decision on Richard’s part. Richard leaves us with the Society in robust financial health – with strong capital, strong liquidity, an ambitious business plan, and a great team in place to deliver for our members.”

“We are grateful to Richard for his years of service – and most recently for leading us through the challenges of Covid. Through regularly considering succession planning, the Board were unanimous in concluding that Adam Evetts should succeed Richard. Adam has worked within the building society sector for over 27 years, including at two top-ten societies, and has significant expertise in all areas of risk management, a strong commercial instinct, and the ability to develop, lead and manage teams successfully. The Board consider he will be able to successfully lead the Society as it continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of existing and new members, through delivering our growth and development plans.”
