David Marlow

Chief Executive Officer
Nottingham Building Society

David is the Chief Executive of Nottingham Building Society; a role he has held since 2011.

The Nottingham is a top 10 building society with assets of over £4bn.  Since the financial crisis the Society has developed significantly; increasing its assets by almost 50% and growing its franchise from 31 branches in four counties to over 50 in 10 counties across England.

The Society is growing its membership through developing its unique all under one roof advice and service proposition providing a combination of savings, whole of market mortgage advice, whole of market financial planning advice, protection and estate planning services from its branches.

The Society is working with Salesforce and its partners to develop a fully digital version of this unique proposition, seeking to help younger members to save, plan and protect for their futures through the provision of this unique offering. In doing so they expect to contribute to the   transformation of the savings market for the benefit of members.  The Society has a strong community ethos through its “Doing Good Together” initiative, which over the past seven years has raised, donated or funded over £1million for local causes – focussing especially on homelessness, employability and financial awareness.

David has over 30 years financial services experience in both the mutual and plc sectors having held a number of senior roles at Alliance & Leicester, including MD of A & L Direct, Director of Contract Centres and Director of Current Accounts and Savings.  He represents Building Societies on the FCA’s Small Business Practitioners Panel and has previously held the role of Deputy Chairman of the Building Societies Association.

He is married with 3 children and lives in the East Midlands: he enjoys most sports, but now watches more than participates, particularly Leicester City where he has been a season ticket holder for many years.
