Chris will lead CivilisedBank’s roll-out to established businesses and growth companies.
He joins the company from Growth Street, where he was responsible for commercial strategy and growth as its commercial director.
Chris also previously served at GENIAC as its sales and marketing director, and at Aldermore as sales director of invoice finance and commercial director.
Mark Stephens, CEO at CivilisedBank, said: “Chris has a wealth of experience and is hugely respected within the industry, particularly for his understanding of the SME market.
“The past few months his support has been invaluable as we shape our proposition to reflect the ever-changing needs of our future customers and the developments within the sector.
“Chris has a key role to play as we move towards launching during the first half of 2019.”
Chris added: “I am really excited to be joining CivilisedBank, a bank which will be championing solid banking support for SMEs underpinned by best-in-class technology.
“The SME market has been underserved and we know that they have been calling for a banking proposition that addresses their specific needs.
“I’m looking forward to working with our intermediary panel and to showing UK businesses how CivilisedBank is different and can really help them succeed in an ever more challenging environment.”
