Leek United Building Society has appointed Tracey Johnson as its new Human Resources (HR) Director.
Tracey has almost 30 years’ experience in HR/personnel within the housing and financial services sectors, including senior and executive-level positions.
She joins the Society from Newcastle-under-Lyme-based social housing provider Aspire Housing Ltd., where she was Executive Director for Corporate Services/Business Transformation.
Prior to that, Tracey gained considerable and wide-ranging experience in a succession of other senior positions, which included three years as Senior HR Manager with a City of London investment bank.
Born in Crayford, Kent, Tracey, 54, began her career in the typing pool of the Inland Revenue before securing her first personnel-based position with a global firm of financial intermediaries.
Her appointment is the first executive-level HR role to be created by the Society.
Tracey said: “It’s critical to the development and strategy within any organisation for its people to have a voice around the executive table.
“There are exciting challenges ahead, and I am very much looking forward to working with Leek United’s loyal, dedicated and expert team as the Society moves forward.”
Tracey lives in Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent, and in her spare time enjoys cinema, reading, and walking her Cairn Terrier, Buddy.Back to news
