He has also spent time at Saffron Building Society and Experian Decision Analytics in various roles, including head of banking and had senior roles at Broad Vision and Barclays.

A Shawbrook Bank spokesperson said: “John has made a significant contribution to the bank, employing his experience and expertise to help bring the organisation to this point in the journey, and we wish him well for the future.

“John is in the process of handover following which he will leave the bank at the end of the month.

“All of our business and property customers, products and operations will now be managed in our new Enterprise group led by Neil Rudge, a member of the bank’s leadership team since 2018.

“Leveraging the distribution and customer experience enhancements of our technology programmes and growing data capabilities, new proposition development and strengthening existing intermediary and customer relationships will be key priorities.
