UK bank Aldermore has appointed Neil Kindness as associate director of structured finance, to be responsible for deals in both London and Scotland.
Kindness joins Simon Maddocks and Peter Raybould in the structured finance team, currently led by Ian Flaxman. The team will be developing structured finance deals for UK SMEs with borrowing requirements between £2m and £12.5m.
Prior to his appointment, Kindness worked as a regional sales director at Close Invoice Finance where he established Close’s Scottish presence. Kindness also developed his career in financial services as a director at Landsbanki, GE Capital and GMAC commercial finance.
Kindness said: “Aldermore’s structured finance team is a very exciting concept; mid-sized firms have been crying out for a bank that will consider their business as a total proposition, rather than focussing on just one element of their financial needs. I’m delighted to have joined this dynamic young team and look forward to working with businesses both in London and Scotland.”
Ian Flaxman said: “Neil has considerable experience to draw on, and I have no doubt he will make a big impact both north and south of the border.”
