CivilisedBank has appointed Nick Baker (pictured above) as its new head of intermediaries.
Nick joins from commercial mortgage broker Christie Finance, where he served as managing director.
In his new role, Nick will focus on leading the development and execution of the bank’s introducer strategy.
He will support the delivery of commercial products and steer the relationship with the bank’s intermediary partners.
This appointment comes as CivilisedBank builds its digital SME bank, which is set to launch in 2019.
The bank will offer business customers access to banking experts, finance solutions and digital banking.
Chris Weller, chief commercial officer at CivilisedBank, said: “Nick joins CivilisedBank with a fantastic reputation within the commercial finance sector for building strong relationships and for having a genuine passion for helping small businesses grow and thrive.
“His joining the Civilised team illustrates our commitment to servicing our selected broker partners and the importance we place on relationships, as we work towards providing something different to what is currently being offered within the market.”
Nick added: “CivilisedBank is leading the charge in offering a new model for SME banking and I’m delighted to be joining the team.
“I know from my work with small businesses that for too long they have been overlooked by the larger high street and online-only banks, so I am thrilled to be leading the planning and implementation of our intermediary offering and working towards bringing the CivilisedBank alternative to market next year.”
