Lloyds Bank has signed its latest agreement with a West Midlands local authority by partnering with North Warwickshire Borough Council.
Lloyds Bank Commercial will provide ongoing banking facilities to the council, which serves a population of 62,000 in towns such as Atherstone and Polesworth and recently concluded its relationship with its previous banking provider.
The partnership will see the bank's specialist education, government and communities team work with the council's finance team to streamline its banking arrangements.
The announcement follows the news in May that Lloyds Bank had been appointed by Wyre Forest District Council.
Chris Brewer, deputy chief executive of North Warwickshire Borough Council, said: "During the tender process, Lloyds Bank stood out as an organisation that understands the requirements and demands faced by local authority partners, particularly in the current climate."
Birmingham-based Jatinder Dhaliwal, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank Commercial, added: "Lloyds Bank is committed to driving economic growth by helping local authority partners to identify the very best processes to provide optimum service to their communities, and we are already working closely with the council to achieve this in North Warwickshire."
