Shawbrook Bank expands its Regional Business Centre network to the Thames Valley and South region
Shawbrook Bank has recently announced its intention to build a regional network of business centres across the UK over the next 6 months. The plan is to strengthen its support and commitment to businesses across the UK by deploying local specialists who understand the market and sector their business customers are operating in.
Shawbrook Bank is pleased to announce the opening of the Thames Valley and South Regional Business Centre. The Centre will be led by Andrew Rutherford, regional managing director, Thames Valley and South who will lead a team who will be responsible for developing and growing relationships in the region within the specialist markets in which we operate. He will work with our existing teams to build a strong regional centre from which the Bank can expand and deliver its services closer to new and existing clients.
Andrew brings a wealth of banking experience across multiple disciplines in the corporate and commercial sector. Andrew previously worked at NatWest Lombard, GMAC, NMB – Heller and GE Capital before co- founding Centric Commercial Finance in 2007, which was subsequently bought by Shawbrook in June 2014.
Tim Hawkins who will lead the national Business Centre network said: “Andrew brings to the bank significant experience and a consistent track record of delivering facilities to SME’s over many years. Increasingly clients want a holistic approach to their banking needs along with local experts who can really understand their business. Andrew will help us bring the banks’ offerings closer to our clients and markets to meet this need and demand.”
Commenting on his appointment, Andrew said: “I am passionate about providing SME’s with the right facilities for their businesses and supporting great UK companies that employ so many people. I am thoroughly looking forward to the challenge of increasing our presence through our new regional network. There is a huge opportunity, with the breadth and depth of the Groups capabilities, to grow its relationships in these markets. Shawbrook has an excellent reputation and an entrepreneurial culture ideally suited for the Southern SME community and related intermediary markets. ”
