Aldermore has appointed Glenn Souter as business development manager (BDM) in its invoice finance team for London and the South East.

Prior to working at Close Brothers, he held roles at Hitachi Capital, the finance solutions provider, and HSBC where he worked for over 15 years.

Souter added: “I’m delighted to be joining the experienced team at Aldermore. Having worked within the invoice finance industry at both high street bank and an independent funder level, I saw Aldermore as a perfect match for my skill set. I’m looking forward to getting the word out there about how Aldermore can support businesses during these very testing times.”
