Nationwide Building Society has announced the appointment of Stephen Uden as its head of Corporate Citizenship.
Stephen joins Nationwide from Microsoft where he was responsible for leading their Citizenship agenda. His career at the company spanned 16 years, and most recently he was responsible for creating and launching "Britain Works", a major company programme focusing on jobs and growth to help 500,000 people back into work.
At Nationwide he will be responsible for delivering the Society's Corporate Citizenship agenda and specifically embedding and delivering its new Citizenship strategy, which is due to be unveiled in November.
In addition to experience in Corporate Affairs, Marketing and Measurement, Stephen is a mathematician and an active supporter of the education sector, a natural fit with the Society's Nationwide Education initiative.
Fiona MacAllan, head of Corporate Communications and Citizenship at Nationwide, said: "I'm pleased to welcome Stephen to our dedicated Citizenship team at this hugely exciting time. He brings valuable experience and will help us to embed our challenging Citizenship agenda."
Stephen Uden, new head of Corporate Citizenship at Nationwide, said: "I'm really excited about starting my new role at Nationwide and delivering the new Citizenship strategy. As well as building on existing initiatives, such as Nationwide Education, I'm also looking forward to making a difference to the communities from which the Society grew."
