DF Capital, the specialist commercial lending and personal savings bank, has made a series of new hires in its commercial team this year as it looks to grow its presence across the UK, supporting dealers and manufacturers with inventory finance across its key sectors.
The new appointments include Jelena Harris who has been appointed as a commercial development manager to support the bank’s growth in the industrial, materials handling and construction industries. Further appointments include Kate Mullen, Carwyn Lloyd, Eve Walker, Sabba Shah and Denva Morton who have taken up commercial development manager roles; and Kevin Boyd, Oliver Sweetman and Ryan Manning, all of whom join as national client managers.

A big welcome to our new colleagues. I look forward to championing everyone in their new roles and recruiting further throughout the year.”
