Lloyds Bank boosts support for Manchester firms

Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking has promoted two senior banking professionals within its Manchester team, boosting its specialist support to businesses in the city region.

Kate Salt and Simon Quin have been appointed as relationship directors, with the remit of supporting and growing the bank’s portfolio of SME customers in Greater Manchester and the surrounding area.

The appointments form part of Lloyds Bank’s commitment to build on its already considerable footprint in the North West and follows the recent expansion of the region’s Business Development Team.

Simon joins the Manchester team with a wealth of experience, having previously supported the bank’s customers with their working capital, cashflow and global trade management issues, across roles in Commercial Finance, International Trade, and SME banking.

Meanwhile, Kate will be building on her ten years of established experience as a healthcare relationship manager, expanding her role to deliver specialised support for healthcare clients across the North West.

Together, the pair bring with them almost 30 years of experience in the banking sector and will work alongside businesses with turnovers ranging from £3million to £25million as they look to achieve their growth ambitions.

They join a team of 10 relationship directors and managers that work with businesses across all sectors in Greater Manchester.

Chris Whittle, Area Director for Greater Manchester at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: “We’re by the side of businesses in Greater Manchester and the wider North West as they look to play a part in the region’s continued economic growth.

“It’s vital that firms can work with advisors that truly understand their sector and the challenges they face in order to realise their growth ambitions, and Kate and Simon have been instrumental for many firms in that respect.

“Part of our commitment to help Britain prosper is ensuring that these companies have the funding needed to thrive. That’s why we’ve pledged to lend up to £1.3 billion to firms in the North West during 2020.”
