Aldermore, a specialist lender and savings bank established in 2009, has promoted Stefan Radymski to Head of Business Development. Stefan’s specific remit is to oversee the business finance needs and requirements of small and medium-sized enterprises, working closely with introductory sources and networks across the Midlands.
Stefan joined Aldermore in 2012. He now heads Aldermore’s Midlands-based business finance team. The team has over 40 years’ experience in business finance and are delighted at the response they’ve received from new and existing businesses in the region.
Alongside Stefan is Mark Williams, who has worked in banking and financial services for 32 years and joined Aldermore when it was established in 2009, as Business Development Manager. Mark has always focused on the West Midlands and has built up an excellent reputation for supporting SMEs in the area. He has strong relationships with the local introducer and intermediary market.
New recruit Alex Hazell joined Aldermore in September 2015 as Business Development Manager, having spent seven years in the industry most recently with Close Brothers. Alex will be covering the hubs of Coventry, Stratford, Warwickshire and Milton Keynes and has made an impressive start to his career with Aldermore.
Stefan Radymski, Head of Business Development at Aldermore, said:
“It’s been a great start to the year and we have supported a number of fast growing businesses. I’ve been out and about in the region and SMEs are being very proactive. On a day-to-day basis, management teams are speaking to me about their expansion plans and how they can fund growth.
“At Aldermore we take a very human approach to lending; that’s why our dedicated credit team review every single application. We have real people with a commercial mindset. By taking the time to fully understand the customer’s requirements, we are often able to approve applications that lenders which rely on automated processes would decline and in most cases our solution is a tailored one.”
