Specialist lender Cambridge & Counties Bank has appointed David Gregory as senior relationship manager covering the East Midlands region based in Lincoln.

Gregory will be part of the East Midlands team led by Jayne Follows and will focus on the bank’s property book across the East Midlands market.

Gregory said of his appointment: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Cambridge & Counties Bank, which has a great reputation in the property sector. The role gives me the opportunity to reacquaint myself with commercial brokers and introducers both old and new, supporting them and their clients to develop and grow as well as benefit from the strong expertise available from Cambridge & Counties Bank.”

He started his banking career in 1983 with Natwest at the Lincoln Cathedral office responsible for the Cathedral’s original copy of the Magna Carta.

In 2006 he joined the Derbyshire Building Society as a business development manager and in 2011 joined the commercial division of the Nationwide Building Society following the merger with Derbyshire.

Cambridge & Counties Bank specialises in secured lending and deposit products for small and medium-sized businesses.

Jayne Follows, regional director for East Midlands at Cambridge & Counties Bank, said: “We are delighted to welcome someone of David’s extensive experience to the East Midlands team.”

“We see significant, continued opportunities in the region and are committed to growing our book of property loans through brokers, professional investors and SMEs through what we believe to be the most competitive service and product proposition in the market,” she concluded.
