The Nottingham names Gareth Hagger-Johnson as its first director of data strategy
Nottingham Building Society (NBS), also known as The Nottingham, has appointed Gareth Hagger-Johnson as its new director of data strategy, a newly created role.
Hagger-Johnson will be tasked with developing a new data and insights framework for the firm and will take the lead on all aspects of data and insight management.
The news of Hagger-Johnson’s arrival comes hot on the heels of the appointments of former Tandem Bank chief financial officer (CFO) Anthony Murphy as CFO and Paul Howley as the building society’s first ever chief technology and transformation officer (CTTO).
Hagger-Johnson, who will report to CTTO Howley, joins The Nottingham from London’s PCF Bank, where he served as head of data since July 2021.
Howley says Hagger-Johnson’s technical experience in data engineering, data architecture and data transformation will be “invaluable” to the business. With more than 15 years’ worth of experience as a data professional, he has worked across several industries including financial services, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and digital health.
Speaking on his appointment, Hagger-Johnson says: “Data-driven insights have the potential to unleash enormous change across the business and help The Nottingham deliver on its purpose-led mission to boost homeownership.”
