Wilson and a team of 10 experienced individuals are tasked with growing the bank’s capacity and expertise in London, Thames Valley and the South
With 14 years’ experience, Wilson will be a valuable addition to the Shawbrook team as it focuses on becoming the lender of choice for businesses in the region looking for high levels of service and tailored funding solutions.
Shawbrook Bank has appointed Oliver Wilson as Regional Managing Director for London, Thames Valley and the South of England.
Leading a team of 10 people, Wilson is tasked with building Shawbrook into the lender of choice for small and medium-sized businesses in the region who value the expertise, flexibility and tailored funding solutions that it delivers through a network of Regional Business Centres.
Wilson, who has 14 years’ experience in corporate lending, joins most recently from M&G Investments.
Prior to M&G, Wilson spent 6 years at the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Asset Based Lending business, where he was most recently Head of the London and South region. There he was responsible for leading a team originating, structuring and managing quality debt packages in the asset-based lending sector.
Neil Rudge, interim Managing Director of Business Finance at Shawbrook Bank, said: “London, Thames Valley and the South are important areas for Shawbrook, so we are delighted to welcome aboard Oliver, who has vast experience in commercial finance.
“Our aim is simple: we want to be the first name businesses think of when they need to finance critical kit or to fund a major strategic milestone – whenever the products, flexibility or quantum isn’t available to them on the high street.”
Wilson said: “I’m very excited to have joined Shawbrook. We want to be the lender of choice for good businesses across the region that need finance to grow and evolve.
“What we offer is a pragmatic, well-thought out approach to structuring that you can’t get from many lenders on the high street. The message we want to give to businesses is: we’re here, we will listen and we are ready to lend.”
