Shawbrook Bank has appointed former Barclays Wealth chief operating officer Ian Henderson as its new chief executive.

Henderson will take up his new appointment on 3 December.

Prior to Barclays Wealth, Henderson was the chief executive of RBS International.

Shawbrook Bank chairman Sir George Matthewson says: “Ian’s appointment gives us the full complement of talented senior executives who will lead Shawbrook on its growth strategy. Demand for an alternative to the high street banks is stronger than ever, and we are committed to offering small businesses and individuals loans based on sensible decision making, competitive savings products and an excellent customer service.”

The demand for greater competition in the banking sector continues to increase, and Shawbrook is already providing straightforward banking to thousands of SMEs and individuals. This is a very exciting time to be joining Shawbrook, and I look forward to leading the bank into its next phase of rapid growth.”
