Santander Corporate & Commercial has appointed two business development directors to boost support for SMEs in the Midlands. The appointments follow the recent openings of new corporate business centres in Stoke, Shrewsbury and Worcester. Rav Bagri, previously the bank's business development director in Coventry and Warwickshire, will be based at the bank's corporate business centres in Birmingham and Coventry. He will be responsible for building relationships with clients in the central Midlands as Santander Corporate & Commercial looks to grow its lending in the region. Tom Addyman, previously business development director in Birmingham, will be based at the bank's corporate business centres in Wolverhampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Shrewsbury and Worcester. He will be responsible for building relationships with new clients in the south and west Midlands.
