Skipton International has added to its business development team with the appointment of Sean Gauvain as business development manager (BDM).
Gauvain (pictured, left) joins the Guernsey regulated bank with over 14 years’ experience in banking and will be helping to grow Skipton’s deposit business.
Gauvain’s role will see him build relationships with corporate and fiduciary partners, promoting Skipton’s competitive savings products and its customer service.
Having worked in retail and private banks, he has worked on both the mortgage and deposit side of organisations.
Gauvain said: “I have long admired Skipton and the success it has enjoyed and am delighted to become a part of its close-knit team. As an independent bank Skipton has the agility to react quickly and make necessary changes to meet the needs of its clients and to adapt to the changing marketplace, giving it a real edge over its competitors.”
Nigel Pascoe (pictured, right), director of business development, added: “Sean’s experience will be hugely beneficial in helping us increase the deposit side of our business, which supports the growth of our mortgage book.
“This new role is an expansion of our team and supports our ambition to become the preferred offshore savings bank and mortgage provider.”
