“I look forward to welcoming her to the British Business Bank in this newly created role and working with her to ensure smaller businesses across the UK are encouraged and enabled to seek the finance best suited to their needs.”
Angelene added: “The creation of the new demand development unit at the British Business Bank is testament to the focus being put on delivering a customer-centred and compelling proposition to market that meets the demands and needs of our customer segments.
