Meet the CEO

Richard Norrington Interior small

I took over as Chief Executive of Ipswich Building Society in 2016

I have worked in the financial services sector for nearly three decades, with 16 years at Barclays and, more recently, 10 years at Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank where as regional director I had responsibility for the East of England area. I am married with four children and currently live in Hertfordshire.

Looking after our local community goes back to our formation in 1849; we supported the growing population of Ipswich by purchasing land and building homes for them to own and live in. We continue in that spirit today, securing funds from our savers and using part of these to lend to those wishing to buy a home. My priority is to lead the Society to achieve continued success, supporting the needs of our members and helping our local community to thrive.

Being a member of a mutual should provide a different relationship to that of merely being a customer. You are a part of our heritage, future and success. If you would like to share your views with me on any aspect of Ipswich Building Society, please email me on
