Shawbrook Commercial Property has promoted David Morris to director of risk management, Gavin Seaholme to head of sales and Ade Akande to head of MI and analytics.

Emma Cox, sales director, commercial property, said: “David, Gavin and Ade all display outstanding leadership skills and we are very fortunate to have such a strong senior team at Shawbrook.

“These promotions signal Shawbrook’s continued commitment to being one of the best commercial lenders in the market.”

Morris helped the team to prepare for regulatory change and growth.

He said: “This role presents an opportunity to create growth by balancing our attitude towards risk and our need to be entrepreneurial to serve our broker partners.”

Seaholme will be responsible for managing the field sales team on a daily basis.

He said: “I am looking forward to using my experience and ideas to help the wider sales team deliver on providing a high level of support for all our broker partners and exploring ways in which we can continue to add value to our strong offering.”

Akande has worked closely with Karen Bennett, sales and marketing director and the Sales team in helping develop Shawbrook’s wider strategy. He has supported the commercial project list, and will now take a broader role covering all MI requirements.

He said: “Shawbrook always looks for areas to improve, and using data intelligently helps us challenge the way we currently do things.

“This often leads to positive change across our product proposition, improvements to our systems, or can simply provide reassurance that we are doing things the right way.

“I plan to continue with developing a deeper understanding of our customers, our valued broker partners and ourselves to inform everything we do, helping us build and grow together.”
