Simon Whale, chairman at PG Mutual, said: “We are very pleased that Andy has chosen to join us. PG Mutual is in a strong position and has exciting opportunities to grow further and develop its services to members. Andy’s wealth of experience and expertise in financial services and his commitment to mutuality will be invaluable to us.
“Under Andy’s leadership I am confident that PG Mutual will continue to build on its extremely high standards of service and financial performance for the benefit of our members.
“I want to thank Mike Perry, for his loyalty and leadership over the last decade. He leaves the Society in a stronger position now than it was when he joined the Society in September 2011. Everyone at PG Mutual wishes Mike a very happy and fulfilling retirement.”
Elkington added: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining PG Mutual and look forward to working with the board and wider team.
“PG Mutual is an organisation with a real sense of purpose and a passion for serving its members, and I’m excited by the opportunities to build on the strong foundations to take the business forward.’’
