Solihull-based Secure Trust Bank has appointed Graham Drew to head its recently-launched asset finance division.
Mr Drew, who has been appointed as managing director, is joined by Arthur Burton, who has been appointed risk director for asset finance.
The appointments follow the launch of Secure Trust’s asset finance division to offer customers a range of asset-based lending solutions.
Mr Drew brings more than 22 years’ experience in finance and sales, with senior roles at Shawbrook Bank, GE Capital Solutions, De Lage Landen International BV, and Credit Suisse.
Mr Burton previously held senior positions at Shire Leasing, Close Business Finance, ING Lease UK and EFT Finance, with over 25 years’ experience in the industry.
Paul Marston, managing director of business and commercial at Secure Trust Bank, said: “It’s great to welcome both Graham and Arthur on board following the launch of our asset finance arm.
“They bring with them extensive experience and unrivalled knowledge of the marketplace, which will be instrumental in growing the business during the coming months.”
Mr Drew added: “It’s an exciting time to be joining Secure Trust Bank. Although the business is in its early stages, it is already making a significant impact in the marketplace and I look forward to working with some of the most ambitious SMEs in the UK.”
