Nationwide Appoints Debbie Crosbie as First Female CEO

Updated on

Nationwide Building Society named Debbie Crosbie as chief executive officer, making her the first woman to run the lender in its 137-year history.

Crosbie joins next year from rival TSB where she was also CEO, the company said in a statement on Friday. Nationwide, the U.K.’s second-largest mortgage lender, more than doubled its profit before tax in the six months to September as demand for home loans continued to grow through the pandemic.
