Islamic Bank FD moves to Nottingham BS

Ashraf Piranie has taken up a role as
Nottingham Building Society’s FD.

The former Islamic Bank of Britain
finance boss started his new position at the beginning of the week. His
responsibilities include heading up the society’s property services division
but his new remit will be focussed on the introduction and development of
Islamic banking, he told Accountancy Age. 

Piranie said: ‘I am delighted to be joining The Nottingham. The Society has
made great strides forward in recent years and has exciting plans. I look
forward to playing an active part in its future success.’

Prior to joining IBB Piranie also held senior positions at
Alliance and Leicester
including its director of finance for retail banking. He replaces Andrew Milner
who retired after 14 years as the Society’s FD.

Ian Rowling, chief executive of The Nottingham, said: ‘Ashraf will bring a
fresh perspective to the Society. His knowledge and experience will be a great
asset to The Nottingham. We are very much looking forward to working with him.’
