Shawbrook Bank has announced the promotion of Steve Matthews to the role of regional development manager for Kent and London.
Matthews was made a business development manager (BDM) in January 2014. With over a decade of experience as a packager and then a BDM, Shawbrook believes he has the necessary expertise to grow Shawbrook’s reach in this territory.
He said: “I’m extremely grateful for the faith placed in me by the bank and cannot wait to get started in my new role as a regional development manager.
“Whilst incorporating many of the elements of my previous role, I’m also excited to be more heavily involved with strategic planning for Kent and London. Shawbrook never stands still as evidenced by our successful move into regulated bridging mortgages recently, along with the new RI0 product for simple residential security, and there are so many other opportunities to grow throughout 2016 and beyond.”
Emma Cox, head of sales for Shawbrook Commercial, added: “Since Steve joined us at the start of 2014 he has worked extremely hard to create and maintain a successful region, during a period of immense growth across our commercial mortgages product range. Due to his tenacity and commitment, Steve has taken ownership of his own regional strategy over the last six to nine months.
“This is just reward for Steve’s commitment to Shawbrook and we’re certain that this promotion will only enhance the service he provides to existing, as well as prospective Shawbrook broker partners.”
