2nd April 2014

NatWest has extended their support of the manufacturing industry with the recruitment of a new head of sector for the SME market.

Mark Eastwood joins the bank's specialist sector team as Head of Manufacturing for Commercial Banking, looking after businesses in the SME market. He said: -I am delighted to have joined the team and to be increasing the bank's support for the manufacturing sector. Over the past few months I have been working with our teams in Yorkshire and across the UK to develop a new model to help us support customers by focussing on the areas that customers have told us are important to them. This includes supply chain, trade, apprentices, renewable energy and technology. -By focusing on these core areas and developing the expertise of our independently accredited Relationship Managers accredited by Chartered Banker I believe we can help support the manufacturing sector in emerging positively from the recession and continuing to make such a huge contribution to the UK and global economy. Peter Gray, NatWest Director of Commercial Banking in South Yorkshire added: -Mark has been working closely with our teams in Yorkshire, offering his support and expertise. With manufacturing being such a diverse sector it is important we can add value to all manufacturing businesses; regardless of size, location and sub sector. Our focus is on adding value through tailored product solutions and credible industry knowledge, in order to provide an overarching commitment to support the local manufacturing sector."
