As regional heads, Andy and John will lead teams based in Reading and London, with a total of 15 relationship directors, focussing on deal origination and management of the bank's existing loan book.

As part of their new roles, they will also sit on STB REF's executive committee.

Geoff Ray, managing director of STB REF, said: "Andy and John's appointments recognise the valuable contribution they have made to the business since joining us two years ago. Between them they have a wealth of experience in real estate finance and are well respected amongst clients and peers alike.

"I'm looking forward to working with Andy and John more closely in their new roles as we continue grow the Real Estate Finance business across the UK."

In 2020, STB REF saw revenues increase by 10.4% to £54m, with the team's balance sheet growing by 9.3%, exceeding £1 billion for the first time.
