Green (pictured) has worked for the mutual for two years. He also worked for Lloyds Banking Group’s buy to let business BM Solutions for 13 years, where he was panel management and sales consultant.
Green will replace Sam Lea who is leaving to become an adviser after six years with Dudley Building Society.
Sam Ward, commercial director at the Dudley, said: “While we shall miss Sam Lea and wish him well in his new career, we are particularly fortunate to have James to fit so ably into the role of BDM.
“With his past experience of the industry and the close working relationship he has built up with our intermediary partners as business development officer, while working with Sam Lea, we are confident that he will continue to deliver the level of support that our partners have come to expect from the Dudley.
Green added: “I am delighted to be given this opportunity and look forward to moving into the BDM role.
“Having immersed myself in the Dudley’s culture over the past two years, I am ready to take on this proactive role for the society to continue strengthening our existing relationships and build new ones as the Dudley develops its lending range to service a changing market.”
