Santander Corporate & Commercial has appointed Susan Davies as its new Director, South & West Midlands, as part of the bank's bid to target growth in the region's SME sector. Ms Davies will head up a team of 20 relationship directors and product specialists from the bank's corporate office in Wolverhampton. Clients from across Staffordshire, Shropshire, the Black Country, Worcestershire and Herefordshire fall under her remit. Santander Corporate & Commercial has increased lending by 40% over the past two years in the South & West Midlands region, and is forecasting growth of 20% in 2015. The bank boasts Corporate Banking Centres in Wolverhampton, Stoke, Shrewsbury and Worcester. Ms Davies hopes to increase Santander's Corporate & Commercial client base and position the bank as the lender of choice for the region's diverse and expanding businesses. Ms Davies, who has previously worked as Deputy Regional Director for the West Midlands region for Santander, said: 'Santander is committed to helping businesses in the South and West Midlands prosper. My aspiration is to engage with the region's SMEs and explain how Santander is changing the way British businesses can bank. As a scale challenger, we are bringing much-needed competition to the market.'
