Carlisle’s English Street and Fisher Street branches of The Cumberland have a new manager.

Will Park will lead both branches just four years after joining the building society as a trainee manager.

Recently he has been managing the Dumfries, Lockerbie and Gretna offices.

Will said: “I’m really looking forward to the challenge of going back to managing the branches where my career with the Cumberland began.

"My goal is to ensure my team provides the best possible service for our members, with the aim of making The Cumberland the first choice for financial services in the area.”

David Stewart, area sales manager at The Cumberland, said: “Will has proven himself to be an exceptional manager and will bring enthusiasm and commitment to the teams in our English Street and Fisher Street offices.

"He has a depth of knowledge and experience in the role and I have no doubt he will be a great success at his new branches.”
