Aldermore has appointed Caroline Luxmore (pictured above) as its head of commercial mortgages.
The newly created role within the specialist bank’s business finance division sees Caroline move from her previous role of senior lending manager in Aldermore’s commercial mortgages team.
Prior to joining Aldermore in 2012, Caroline held roles at RBS, Bank of Scotland and Yorkshire Bank.
This new post will see Caroline lead the commercial lending activity across intermediate and direct distribution channels.
“I am delighted to be offered this fantastic opportunity to lead and develop the Aldermore commercial mortgages proposition and bring us closer to becoming a market leader,” said Caroline.
“By introducing increasingly competitive products and an improved service, I know this ambition is very much in our grasp.”
Based in Aldermore’s Birmingham office, Caroline will report to Carl D’Ammassa, group managing director of business finance.
“We have seen sizeable growth in our business finance lending over the last few years, and our commercial mortgages offering is an important part of our ongoing plans to support more businesses with more products and services than ever before,” said Carl.
“Caroline’s vast experience will help us drive the business forward.
“She is a great asset to the team.”
