Meet our board member Mark Badcock

Mark Badcock has been involved with credit unions for over 20 years and his experience is very valuable in his role as a Board member of London Capital Credit Union.

Mark says: “I helped set up a credit union for Islington Council employees nearly 20 years ago and since then have served as compliance officer, secretary, vice president and president of the employees’ credit union between 2002 and 2007, prior to the establishment of the borough-wide Islington and City Credit Union in 2007, when I was appointed as treasurer.”

Mark has worked with Islington Council as a qualified accountant for over 30 years and he says that his involvement with the credit union has taught him a lot about the merits of credit unions as an ethical and successful alternative to banks and other financial institutions.

He says his work with credit unions has helped develop his skills in things like chairing meetings and, in return, he says he tries to apply the skills from his day job to help the credit union.

Mark says: “What I like most about the credit union is our friendly and helpful staff, volunteer and Board colleagues. I also like the work we do in helping people manage and improve their finances, especially in the difficult circumstances that many of our members face, and our uniquely democratic and ethical nature.”

He adds: “I’m very pleased about the success of London Capital Credit Union in recent years. I’ve seen us become one of the fastest growing credit unions in the UK, helping local people keep out of the clutches of high cost lenders, and benefiting the local community. I’d urge anyone seeking ways to start saving, to get help with the costs of borrowing or looking for an ethical savings and investment alternative to join the credit union.”

Mark lives in Surrey, just outside London, and in his spare time likes reading, walking and visiting places of interest. He also likes football – he says that Chelsea are his team, but he keeps quiet about this, working in Islington!
