Redwood Bank has appointed Leon Marklew (pictured above) as its new director of strategy, products and marketing.

Leon was previously at RBS, where he served as a regional director for retail banking.

Prior to that, he held positions at the Future Williams & Glyn Bank, Santander and HSBC.

Redwood has claimed that its recent recruitment drive was needed to support the fast growth within the bank.

Gary Wilkinson, CEO and co-founder of Redwood Bank, said: “When we come across a driven and talented recruit such as Leon, it does not need a lot of thought when inviting them to join the team.

“He has a broad spectrum of experience working within retail, commercial, corporate banking and invoice finance, leading large teams across regional and national geographies.

“Not only that, he’s spent 26 years working in the small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) market, which are our target customers.

“We’re certain he will become a valuable asset to our customers and the bank.”

Leon added: “I’m thrilled to be joining such a dynamic and hardworking team.

“I’m extremely passionate about finding mutually beneficial solutions for SMEs, helping them to grow and develop.

“I am very much looking forward to getting my teeth into the role and forging new relationships among the customers.”
