Wesleyan Bank appoints new Head of Indirect Sales

Wesleyan Bank, a specialist commercial finance provider to UK SMEs, has appointed Yvonne Wiseman as Head of Indirect Sales. Yvonne, who joins from Capex Finance (part of the Maxxia Group), will report to the company's Director of Sales and Marketing, Simon Welling.

Yvonne Wiseman will oversee the strategy, objectives and performance of all sales through the indirect channel. In particular, she will be responsible for growing asset lending through Wesleyan Bank's growing network of broker partners.

Yvonne has gained over 38 years' experience in a variety of senior sales positions for leading banking groups, asset finance providers and commercial finance brokers.

Her success has seen her being instrumental in the establishment and growth of the broker propositions at both Metro Bank and Close Brothers Asset Finance and she credits this to her focus on providing outstanding customer service.

Simon Welling, Director of Sales and Marketing at Wesleyan Bank, comments, "Yvonne is someone I have known for over 20 years having previously worked with her at Lombard.

"She possesses all of the qualities and experience that we need and her appointment is critical so that we continue to build our capability and maximise the potential within our broker channel".

Over the last 12 months, Wesleyan Bank has invested significantly in its product and service offerings to better serve its existing broker base. This has led to the company achieving record asset lending numbers in 2020, despite the impact of coronavirus.

Yvonne Wiseman says, "Wesleyan Bank is an established brand and has achieved phenomenal success this year. I'm excited to join a high performing and dedicated team that shares my views on the importance of great customer relationships and outcomes."

She adds, "With an abundance of available funds and a desire to continually improve I'm relishing taking the Indirect business forward. I am already expanding the team and more new appointment announcements will be made soon."

Wesleyan Bank is a subsidiary of specialist financial services mutual Wesleyan Assurance Society, which has over £8 billion of assets under management.
