Shawbrook has announced that Rob Lankey (pictured above) will join as its new director of commercial investment at the end of February.

He will lead the growth of the specialist bank’s commercial investment arm, which is a key area of its focus for 2019 and beyond.

Rob will join from Amicus Commercial Mortgages, where he served as its managing director.

He currently sits as a non-executive director at Saffron Housing Trust Limited.

This will be the second time he has served at a specialist bank, having previously held various roles at Aldermore.

“I’m delighted to be joining Shawbrook at such an exciting time, both for the business and the market,” said Rob.

“Portfolio investors in the commercial space represent a key demographic for the UK and supporting these businesses with their growth plans via the broker channel is a big part of Shawbrook’s future plans.

“Shawbrook has always led from the front with innovative products and a strong service proposition, and this is culturally something with which I am very familiar given my previous roles.

“I know the team well from my time in the industry and am looking forward to hitting the ground running in the summer.”

Shawbrook is adding 15 new people to the commercial investment team, including several senior underwriters, credit risk and lending operations staff.

Emma Cox, sales director at Shawbrook Commercial Mortgages, added: “Rob has a wealth of experience across the commercial landscape and having him take on this important role within the senior leadership team is a big win.

“This immediately dials up our capability in the commercial space, and along with on-going investment in other areas of the business, demonstrates our appetite to grow in all our specialist markets.”
