Mark Bogard, CEO of Family Building Society shares his thoughts on the last 10 years

"When we started, I was a bit worried that some families really don't like each other! But despite the inevitable tensions here and there, most families get along pretty well and know that they have to work together across the generations to help each other and make the most of their money.
Launching anything new is always pretty hairy and you just don't know if it'll succeed. We have succeeded. We have grown, got more customers, improved what we do and we still treat people as individuals, which is what they want, but it's getting rarer and rarer. 
Our biggest opportunity is that lots of people still haven't heard of us!!"
