ABN Amro Commercial Finance has appointed a head of sales, following a similar appointment to the bank’s Lease UK wing last week.
Jeremy Harrison has been given the sales role and will lead an origination team focusing on mid-market, corporate and international businesses with financing needs across the UK and Europe.
Harrison will report directly into ACF commercial director, Deborah Bell, and will liaise closely with the head of sales for ABN Amro Lease UK, Gareth Stockton, as the two business lines support mutual clients across ABN AMRO Asset Based Finance, N.V.
With over 20 years of asset-based lending experience, prior to joining ACF Harrison was a regional group head and senior vice president of business origination at Bank of America in London.
Harrison has also worked for Lloyds Bank in New York, Dublin and London, where he held senior deal origination and client management roles, having started his career in finance with GMAC.
Harrison currently holds the position of president and director of the Commercial Finance Association European Chapter.
Deborah Bell, commercial director for ACF said: “We are delighted to welcome Jeremy on board and have no doubt his experience, knowledge of the industry and relationship driven approach will bring great value to our team.”
Jeremy Harrison, head of sales ACF: “I look forward to taking on this new role and working together with the team to further promote ABN AMRO’s cross border asset based proposition in the market.”
Last week ABN Amro appointed Gareth Stockton to the position of head of sales for ABN Amro Lease UK.
Stockton will lead the sales team and takes on the role from Simon Lefevre, recently appointed as managing director of ABN AMRO Asset Based Finance.
Stockton has over 20 years experience in client-facing roles within the finance industry. He joined ABN AMRO Lease UK in 2014, working as a relationship director. Prior to that, he held various sales and relationship management roles for Lombard and Bank of Scotland.
