Aldermore has made several new hires to its invoice finance team covering the East of England.
Three senior hires – Alex Smakowski, Andrew Phillips and Adam Stevens – join as regional sales managers, with combined banking experience in excess of 70 years.
Smakowski joins from Bibby Financial Services, where he was responsible for delivering invoice discounting and trade finance for SMEs on a day-to-day basis; Phillips has more than 30 years’ experience at Lloyds Bank; and Stevens spent eight years at RBS as a Commercial Relationship Manager.
Martin Guildford, regional director for Aldermore Invoice Finance in the East of England, said: “I am delighted to welcome Alex, Andy and Adam to the team. They join at an exciting time for the Bank, and I look forward to them playing an integral role in continuing our growth as we seek to bring more SME customers to Aldermore in the coming years.
“These excellent additions to the team reflect how fast our business is growing in the East of England in particular. I speak to SMEs every day who are looking for exceptional customer service and a bank that understands their needs. This is precisely why the Invoice Finance business at Aldermore is growing so quickly, something I hope to see continue in the years to come with such strong talent being brought into the business.”
