Lloyds Bank Commercial Real Estate has signalled its intent to increase business with the region’s investors, developers and asset managers with the appointment of Rob Marriott as a relationship director.
Marriott joins Allan MacKenzie’s North of England team, based in Manchester’s Spring Gardens, from the bank’s transaction execution division.
He first worked in the region’s property sector in 2006, including a role in the bank’s business support team. In his new role, Marriott will be supporting Lloyds Bank’s origination activity and relationships with mid to large-sized private real estate clients.
MacKenzie said: “The North West is a key market for us nationally, with significant levels of investment and development activity in Manchester and Liverpool specifically.
“Rob has a mandate to grow our coverage here by increasing the level funding support we can provide to the region’s market. His experience of helping structure and execute complex transactions will bring unique insights to our clients in his new, relationship-focused role supporting our aspirations for the Northern Powerhouse.”
Marriott added: “Our region has some of the UK’s most active and innovative, privately-owned property companies. They’re reshaping towns and cities here and further afield. I’m looking forward to working closely with their management teams to help them execute their growth strategies.”
