IT has been a bumper year for the Leeds BS.
In his annual review, chief executive Peter Hill proclaims: "We attracted 22,000 new members, taking total membership to a record 719,00."
He continues: "Pre-tax profit rose by 23 per cent to a record £108.5-million."
The boss, who is 54, was rewarded for the progress with a substantial hike in his pay.
His total remuneration was £649,000 compared with £586,000 the previous year.
There were also increases for the rest of the board - both executives and non-executives.
Kim Rebecchi, who left as distribution and marketing director last June (after 26 years and 11 months with the society), received a "loss-of-office" payment of £136,407.
Since September, she has been a non-executive director with the Business Enterprise Fund.
The Leeds no longer has a distribution and marketing director.
Its senior non-executive director is Les Platts (62) whose other interests including being treasurer of a county cricket club . . . oh dear, it's Lancashire CCC.
The society holds its annual meeting at 11am on Thursday April 14 at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds.
