An experienced commercial banker with nearly 40 years’ experience in the banking industry, Sue has held a variety of roles within the SME and commercial space within London and the South East, ranging from trading businesses to clients with growing property portfolios. She is passionate about delivering outstanding customer service. 

Dan has had 16 years’ experience in the banking industry, working for RBS and Metro Bank in central London. He has worked with a variety of customers in the SME space, and previously looked after a large number of real estate customers, assisting them to grow and develop their property portfolios.

Gary Wilkinson, CEO and Co-Founder of Redwood Bank, said: “When we come across driven and talented people, we act quickly to invite them to join the team.

“Sue and Dan have a broad spectrum of experience working within the banking industry and we look forward to them adding their expertise to our already impressive team. We’re certain they will become valuable assets to our customers and the Bank.”
The pair follow in the footsteps of several high-profile appointments, which have been made since Redwood Bank’s inception in August 2017. The new recruitment drive will help support the current fast, but measured, growth, and to strengthen the team within the Bank.
