Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance has bolstered its senior team with the appointment of Richard Foote as its Regional Managing Director for London and the South East as it looks to support more businesses seeking funding.

Foote joins from ABN AMRO Commercial Finance (“ABN”) where he held the role of Director of Origination and Structuring in the firm’s London office focussed on structuring and transacting asset-based lending (“ABL”) facilities both domestically and in Europe. During his five years at ABN he held senior origination and portfolio management roles. Prior to this, Richard worked in the advisory arm of PwC where he qualified as a Chartered Accountant and specialised in Corporate Restructuring and Debt and Capital Advisory.

Sean Powell, National Sales Director at Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance, said: “We are delighted to have been able to attract an individual of Richard’s calibre which further strengthens our growing London team, and we are confident that he will fit in to the STB way of life. With a full complement of local Regional Managing Directors now in situ within each of our four regional offices, we believe we are well placed to provide an experienced team that understand the local marketplace.”
