Metro Bank has appointed David Ginn to the newly-created role of head of direct and bank asset finance distribution, reporting to Nathan Mollet, head of asset finance at Metro Bank.
Metro said the newly-created role is designed to grow asset finance lending to businesses that bank with Metro, by working in partnership with the bank’s other commercial lending teams and its store network.
Ginn’s 30 year banking career has spanned both asset finance and commercial banking where he held a variety of senior leadership positions including head of Lombard’s Business and Commercial division.
Mollet said: “In just seven years Metro Bank has opened over one million accounts with combined cash deposits of £9.8bn, and £7.8bn in lending. The pace of growth continues to accelerate particularly rapidly within the business and commercial area. I am therefore delighted to announce the appointment of David Ginn as head of direct and bank asset finance distribution.
“This key appointment will ensure our team of experienced asset finance professionals remains central to the group’s customer proposition: to create fans, not customers.”
