The niche property bank Cambridge & Counties is aiming to lend to more East Midlands businesses after boosting its Leicester Business Development team with two new graduates.
The team, led by East Midlands Director of Business Development Steve Adams, has welcomed in Marco Brice and Simon Hickey.
Marco, from Hull, is an Aston University graduate who spent a year working in financial services as part of his degree in Economics and Management.
“I wanted to take the opportunity to develop myself at an early stage of my career, and by becoming part of Cambridge & Counties’ real estate team I feel I can learn a lot about commercial and residential lending.”
Simon has lived in Leicester for more than 20 years and graduated from the University of Leicester with a degree in Business Economics. He joined Cambridge & Counties in 2015 where he has worked in the Credit team as a Support Officer.
Newly moved to the Business Development team, Simon said:
“Cambridge & Counties Bank is a fresh, exciting and forward-thinking institution going through significant growth. I have benefited from all the career development and support I could have wished for.”
The East Midlands Business Development team has been a key driver in the Banks’ lending which in July 2016 exceeded more than £500 million.
Steve Adams said:
“East Midlands SME’s appetite for lending continues to be strong and by boosting our Business Development team we will be able to help more businesses in the region whilst enhancing our quick, straightforward approach to providing a high quality, can-do service.”
