"We’re looking forward to him making his mark as a Redwood business development manager, as we develop into the South West."
SME lender Redwood Bank has appointed a business development manager for the South West of England.
Rob Bowering joins the team as the bank continues to expand across the country, with the South West being seen a strong area for growth.
Rob has over 16 years’ experience working within the banking and finance industry, including previous roles at Barclays Bank.
He spent nine years as a relationship manager, helping SMEs fulfil their ambitions in Dorset and Wiltshire, and more recently he worked with brokers and other intermediaries across the South West and South Wales, in helping them arrange finance for their clients.
Redwood’s CEO and co-founder, Gary Wilkinson, said: “Rob has a wealth of experience in supporting funding for a wide variety of clients including SME and corporate businesses, as well as property investors and developers.
“He’s a welcome addition to our already impressive and experienced team. Rob stood out to us over the course of the interview process as being talented, committed and dynamic, and we’re looking forward to him making his mark as a Redwood business development manager, as we develop into the South West.”
Rob commented: “I am delighted to join the Redwood team and be part of a bank that is so dedicated and committed to its customers and staff. I am looking forward to widening my already strong network and forging new relationships, as I strive to help grow Redwood Bank.
“It’s a huge honour to be asked to join Redwood, which has already scooped so many industry awards, having only been in business for two years.”
