Cambridge & Counties Bank has named Andrew Arnold as a relationship manager in its Cardiff-based property finance team.
Andrew will report to Paul Howard, regional director at Cambridge & Counties Bank, and focus on growing the bank’s property book across Cardiff and the surrounding south Wales region.
He previously served at HSBC within the commercial banking team — where he looked after around 80 SME clients — and prior to that, Andrew worked at NatWest for 24 years.
Andrew said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Cambridge & Counties Bank, which has a great reputation in the property sector.
“The appointment has given me the opportunity to move into property finance, which is a fast-growing sector across south Wales.”
Paul added: “We’re delighted to welcome someone of Andrew’s experience to the Cardiff team.
“We see significant opportunities in the southern Wales region and are committed to growing our book of property loans among brokers, professional investors and SMEs through what we believe to be the most competitive service and product proposition in the market.”
