Wood was most recently finance director of NBNK Investments and previously group CFO of Skipton Group.

Nick Fielden, who has developed and built Shawbrook’s finance team since the Bank’s launch in October 2011, has taken on the role of group finance director.

Fielden will be responsible for supporting Shawbrook’s business units – savings, commercial lending, asset finance, secured lending and consumer finance – along with the Bank’s day-to-day financial and regulatory management.

Shawbrook Bank created the two senior roles – chief financial officer and group finance director – from a single role.

Philip George, interim CEO of Shawbrook Bank, said: “With Shawbrook going from strength to strength, these key appointments will help to ensure our infrastructure continues to support our significant growth targets.

“It has been an exciting year for Shawbrook Bank and we’re looking to the future with very ambitious growth plans. It is the talent and commitment of Shawbrook’s team that has enabled the bank to achieve so much since we launched, and we’re delighted to have Tom and Nick in place to support the business as we embark on our growth strategy over the coming years.”
