The property finance provider Cambridge & Counties Bank is gearing up for growth across the country, hiring new team members in Leicester, Sheffield and Bristol.

The new arrivals join offices where there have also been promotions to create the structure and resources needed for continued expansion of the challenger bank’s property lending book and customer base.

The business and professional landlord lender clocked up a quarter of a billion pounds of lending in 2014 and is set to accelerate its growth in 2015, helped by further product launches.

At its Leicester headquarters on the city’s New Walk, Cambridge & Counties Bank has added Neil Reddington to its business development team. Neil joins from Yorkshire Bank as a senior business development manager.

In Bristol, Paul Howard is promoted to senior business development manager after opening the Bank’s South West office in Victoria Street in 2014.

Paul is joined by newly arrived business development manager Nigel Key, who comes to Cambridge & Counties after 34 years at NatWest.

And in Sheffield, former Nottinghamshire Police officer Rebecca Jones has joined the team led by Carl Ashley. Also based in the offices at the Quadrant Business Centre is newly promoted business development manager Wendy Burton-Webster

Cambridge & Counties’ chief executive officer Mike Kirsopp said:

 “These promotions and additions are designed to give our offices around the country the capability to increase business whilst preserving the excellent, personal service our clients enjoy.

“We continue to hire at all levels and to promote the talent we have as we begin to tap into the demand we are finding in all regions for our products and service.”
