Cambridge & Counties Bank has named Donna Kerr (pictured above) as area director for Scotland to lead its expansion plans in the region.

Donna — who has 30 years of leadership and business experience — spent the previous three years managing a national team with Blackhorse Finance, covering the automotive point of sale sector. 

She has also been an operations director in the leisure and football industry and has worked in the business banking sector for 20 years for brands such as RBS, Clydesdale Bank, Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Banking Group.

Donna will build and enhance the specialist bank’s existing broker relationships and develop new partnerships in the Scottish property community.

“I know that a huge part of [the bank’s] ongoing success is down to the broker partners and the intermediaries it works with and developing these key relationships will be a core focus for me and the Scottish team going forward,” said Donna.

Carl Ashley, regional director for Scotland and the North at Cambridge & Counties Bank, added that Donna’s appointment reflected the bank’s aspirations for “strong growth” in Scotland.

“She has extensive experience of the SME and property lending sector, as well as running a nationally focused office, and unparalleled contacts in Scotland.”
