Shawbrook sets up shop - locally01/02/2018
Specialist lender Shawbrook Bank has opened one of several new Regional Business Centres in the UK at Kings Hill near Maidstone in Kent, as part of its drive to get closer to the businesses it serves.
“We are a growing bank and firmly believe that the best way to support SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) across the country is by being physically present within the regional economies in which they operate,” said regional managing director David Moran.
Twelve staff are based at Kings Hill and the bank will continue to build its presence there. “The location is ideal for us to meet with customers and partners throughout the region,” added David Moran. “We offer deep sector expertise across a number of industries where specialist knowledge of specific assets is essential. The new office is also home to our specialist Taxi team, led by Sean Taylor, which supports customers throughout the UK as well as the London black cab market.”
As well as financial services related businesses, Kings Hill has a varied and diverse tenant mix from many sectors including property, oil, food, automotive and telecommunications as well as Shawbrook Bank, which has in the past seven years loaned more than £4.1billion and raised more than £3.9billion in deposits.
