Richard Renzi joins the Sheffield-based team as a Business Development Manager alongside Mark Smedley who comes in as a Business Development Officer.
They will be working with Director of Business Development Carl Ashley and Business Development Manager Wendy Burton-Webster who together opened the Bank’s North office in Sheffield’s Quadrant Business Centre in 2014.
Richard, Sheffield born and bred, previously worked for Yorkshire Bank and most recently for National Australia Bank Commercial Real Estate, based in Leeds. His career at Yorkshire Bank began as a branch cashier, progressing through branch management to area sales manager.
Richard said: “I’m delighted to be back in Sheffield working with Carl and Wendy. I’ve heard such great things about the unique Cambridge & Counties Bank approach to lending where every case is manually underwritten which ensures the flexibility to really understand the people behind each deal. My aim is to help grow our presence and broker network with particular focus within the Yorkshire region which is my home turf.”
Mark also worked for Yorkshire Bank for decades, joining its business banking operations in 2007. He was based in Doncaster, Sheffield and most recently in Leeds. Mark said: “I’m keen to put my experience of property lending to good use for Cambridge & Counties’ customers and their brokers.”
Carl Ashley said: “Richard and Mark are highly knowledgeable property funders who can now apply their skills with the can-do attitude which Cambridge & Counties offers to brokers and borrowers. Our two new recruits embody the Bank’s approach of bringing in people who are experienced, proactive and keen to do business.”
