Bank Leumi UK has announced the appointment of Stephen Welch (pictured above) to the hotel finance team as the new senior relationship manager.
In his new role, Stephen will further develop the multi-specialist bank’s expertise in hotel financing and strengthen both new and existing client relationships.
With over 30 years of experience in the finance industry, Stephen has held senior positions in real estate and hotel finance with a range of UK and international banks.
He most recently served as relationship director for Santander’s corporate and commercial banking division, where he co-founded the bank’s hotel and leisure team in 2012.
Stephen said: “I am delighted to be joining Leumi UK and look forward to building on the bank’s outstanding service offering while maintaining its reputation for fostering long-lasting relationships with clients — helping the bank achieve its growth objectives.”
Andy Mallin, chief business officer at Bank Leumi UK, stated that he was thrilled by the appointment and added that Stephen’s experience would consolidate Leumi’s local and continental reach.
Leumi UK also added Daniel Whiteman and Andrew Boyce to its property finance team last month to further develop the bank’s specialist finance services.
