NatWest hires ex-army BDM

Steve Smith spent five years with the Royal Signals, completing tours of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo.

Before joining NatWest he worked as a BDM in the audio-visual industry working with large technology retailers.

More conventionally NatWest has also hired Julianna Maxwell as a field-based BDM. She spent the last eight years as a mortgage broker and has 15 years’ financial services experience.

Her panel will include Glasgow, Aberdeen, Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire.

Paul Kane, acting head of sales, NatWest Intermediary Solutions, said: “I am really pleased to be able to welcome two more talented people to our team.

“It’s important to recruit really high calibre people to fill BDM roles as they are effectively the face of our business.

“Julianna and Steve fit the bill even though they have markedly different career backgrounds.

“The key thing is that they have the right skillset and ‘can do’ attitude to maintain NatWest’s BDM reputation for being proactive, professional and helpful.”
