Lloyds Bank has strengthened its support for businesses in south Wales after appointing Dave Atkinson as new regional director.
Dave will oversee Lloyds Bank’s SME and Mid-Corporate operations across South Wales and the Midlands. He arrives after spending three years as regional director of Lloyds Bank’s operations in the East of England, and brings 34 years of experience to the team, having started his career with Lloyds Bank in 1988
Dave will also continue in his role as Lloyds Banking Group’s UK Head of Manufacturing. He recently authored the UK Manufacturing: From Now to Net Zero report, outlining the steps firms can take to transition to net zero emissions. He hopes to use this guidance to help businesses in south Wales move towards a greener future.
Dave Atkinson said:
“It’s a hugely exciting time for businesses in south Wales and I hope my joining the team will build on the knowledge and expertise we already have to help firms in the region prosper and support them on their journey to net zero.
“South Wales has a thriving hospitality and leisure industry and with Covid-19 restrictions coming to an end, firms are gearing up to capitalise on growth opportunities it will present. We will offer the tailored support businesses need to make the most of these opportunities and continue their growth.”
