Reporting to George Ashworth, managing director of asset finance, Keith brings over 30 years experience of the asset finance industry to his new role, having worked at both Barclays Asset Finance and BNP Paribas.
George Ashworth said: “I’m delighted to welcome Keith to Aldermore, especially as I have had the pleasure of working with him previously at Barclays. I know that with his proven sales and people management skills he will be able to make an immediate contribution and I wish him every success in his new role.”
Sangwin added: “I am thrilled to have joined Aldermore Asset Finance at such an exciting time in the Bank’s development. The team at Aldermore has achieved a great deal in such a short time and its asset finance business continues to go from strength-to-strength. I’m looking forward to working closely with asset finance manufacturers, dealers and brokers over the coming months.”
Aldermore has lent more than £2 billion (a combination of commercial mortgages, residential mortgages, asset finance and invoice finance) since first opening its doors for business in the summer of 2009. Aldermore has approximately 12,000 SME customers and has increased its business client base by 52% during the past year, at a time when many other banks have been scaling back their SME lending activities.
