Kath Myers will be responsible for enhancing and developing payment solutions capabilities including international trade finance, international payments, internet banking and merchant acquiring.  

David Douglas will bring together the bank’s asset finance, invoice finance, business-to-business and agricultural capabilities.  
These appointments follow the announcement of Paul Shephard being named as the new Divisional Director for iFS Corporate.

In addition, Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks have reorganised its regional structure across the UK with new Regional Directors: 

  • Scott McKerracher is the new Regional Director for Scotland

  • Will Lindsay has been appointed as the new Regional Director for the South of England

 Mike Williams, Executive General Manager for Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank’s Integrated Financial Solutions, said the announcement of the new structure follows a significant period of growth for Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank.
Mike said: “The last two years has been a monumental challenge, and these appointments come at a pivotal time for Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks. The entire team has consistently shown a dedication to leadership, expertise and performance which have driven real growth in terms of the number of customers, as well as the strength of those customer relationships.
“Our customers tell us everyday that an integrated approach, in the current climate and beyond, is more sustainable and workable and while we believe the worst of the economic conditions are behind us, we foresee a challenging economic environment that requires the level of service and relationships that our Divisional and Regional Directors deliver.”
Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks recently announced it would commit up to £10 billion of new lending to UK business and mortgage customers over the next two years.

With a network of Financial Solutions Centres across the UK, the Bank’s local banking model ensures that every pound deposited in the area is reinvested back into the local economy in the form of lending to UK businesses.
