United Trust Bank has appointed Daniel Idowu to the role of support officer in its Asset Finance division and he becomes the growing Bank’s 200th member of staff and the 50th person to join UTB this year.
The bank has grown a balance sheet of £1.2bn from modest beginnings and continues to expand in its Moorgate head office in Citypoint. It has also opened a satellite office in Bolton where the majority of staff running its recently launched consumer motor finance business are based.
Welcoming Daniel Idowu, head of asset finance Martin Nixon, said: “Like all divisions of the bank, the Asset Finance team is continuing to expand and we were very pleased that our newest recruit Daniel had the honour of becoming UTB’s 200th staff member. Daniel is just starting out on his career in asset finance following the completion of a Masters degree in Business and Management. He represents one of the new generation of young finance professionals coming into the Asset Finance industry and he’s made an important decision by joining UTB at a very exciting stage of our development.”
Graham Davin, chief executive officer of United Trust Bank commented: “Appointing our 200th member of staff is a significant milestone and was worthy of note and celebration. We’ve grown consistently and organically in the last five years. We have developed all of our existing businesses and entered new markets where we saw opportunity and that includes the creation of a new consumer motor finance business. We welcome Daniel to the team and look forward to more exciting milestones and celebrations in the future.”
