Glen Wilson has been appointed by Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking as Head of Property for small and medium sized enterprises.
Wilson, as part of his new role as the sector’s national head, will manage the bank’s relationships with property businesses with annual turnovers of up to £25million. He will offer his financial expertise, funding and guidance for those companies with desires to grow.
He joins Lloyds from his role as Head of Mortgage Quality and Change at Halifax. He was previously with Lloyds Bank’s retail arm, where he held the position of Senior Manager of Retail Conduct Risk Portfolios. All in all, he has 18 years’ of industry experience to fall back on, gained after a stint as a professional rugby player with Doncaster Knights.
“As the property market responds to a growing economy and increased demand for new residential and commercial developments, it is an exciting time for me to begin this new role with Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking,” Wilson said of his new role.
“I’m looking forward to leading our nationwide team, which is rich with experience and understanding of the challenges faced by the industry, and work to further enhance the quality of service offered to our clients, both old and new.”
Adam White, Managing Director of SME Banking at Lloyds Bank, added: “We are committed to investing in this important area of our business, and in Glen, we have appointed somebody who brings an optimum skillset to ensure that we provide the best quality to our small and medium sized property clients.”
“With a strong reputation for leadership and management, Glen’s appointment will prove essential as we seek to maintain the encouraging growth within the sector.”
Wilson will be based at the bank’s Cavendish Place offices in Central London.
