CivilisedBank has appointed Paul Marston (pictured above) to its board as a non-executive director ahead of the bank’s expected launch in 2019.

Paul brings with him more than 15 years of experience in strategic leadership within both commercial and asset finance, focusing mainly on the SME market.

He is a former managing director at RBS and NatWest, where he was responsible for commercial banking in south England and south Wales.

Paul also gained experience in the challenger banking sector as managing director for business and commercial banking at Secure Trust Bank, while at RateSetter, he ran the commercial finance offering as managing director.

Earlier this year, CivilisedBank announced that it would be reapplying for a new banking licence.

Mark Stephens, CEO at CivilisedBank, said that Paul’s wealth of experience was a crucial match for its business model.

“At CivilisedBank, we are building a better bank that will offer business customers access to banking experts, finance solutions and effortless digital banking, and Paul’s expertise in providing solutions to SMEs will be invaluable as we move towards launch next year.”

Paul added that the SME market continued to be underserved and was in need of a more tailored approach.

“CivilisedBank is set to offer a proposition not currently being offered by the larger high street and online-only banks, making banking better for SMEs. 

“I am really looking forward to bringing my experience to the board and to helping bring this exciting offer to market.”
