Shawbrook Bank boosts service & delivery capability
Shawbrook Bank has enhanced its service and delivery operations following the appointment of three new relationship managers.
Sadie Sharples, Sue Stratton and Nigel Roberts collectively bring more than 60 years’ experience working in UK financial services.
The appointments also strengthen the Bank’s commitment to its specialist, relationship-led lending proposition within its Business Finance Division.
David Moran, managing director of service and delivery at Shawbrook, said: “Sadie, Sue and Nigel are outstanding appointments and collectively bring extensive experience of working in UK financial services to Shawbrook and our Business Finance Division.
“Their appointments demonstrate our ability to attract highly skilled staff and highlights the focus and commitment we place on providing a specialist, relationship-led service for our clients.
“I am extremely excited by the appointment of all three and by the positive impact they will collectively have on both the team here at Shawbrook and on our clients.”
Sadie Sharples joins Shawbrook from RBS where she spent more than 17 years in commercial banking, focussed on providing support to existing customers and introducing new business.
She said: “I enjoy helping clients fulfil their ambitions and I am really excited to be joining an experienced team which is dedicated to achieving that goal also.
“I am eager to support the Bank as we look to grow our commercial loans team in particular. Shawbrook’s expanding offering and flexibility when considering client needs is what excites me most about this role.”
Sue Stratton, who also makes the move from RBS, has enjoyed 15 years’ in corporate banking, having specialised in leveraged finance and bespoke corporate facilities for the last five years.
She said: “Shawbrook is focussed on delivering flexible and tailored finance to UK businesses, which it can do consistently because it has both a great product set and a culture of going the extra mile to deliver a positive impact on its customers.
“It’s exciting to now be part of this talented, professional and growing team and I am particularly looking forward to making a difference in the North West; establishing long lasting relationships with our clients and providing them with the support they need in what is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary times to be growing a business in the UK.”
“I’ve specialised in asset-based lending for the last 20 years with focus latterly on deal structuring and risk management,” adds Nigel Roberts – who himself brings more than 30 years’ experience in banking and finance having worked for National Australia Group, Lloyds Bank and HSBC. “Shawbrook has a strong ABL credit policy and appetite supported by experienced, proven ABL professionals and that is something that I am looking to add to and hopefully improve with my own skillset and experience.”
