A BANK has made changes to the way it deals with business customers in Milton Keynes.

Two specialist divisions have been set up at NatWest, business banking for companies that turn over up to £2million and commercial banking for firms making between £2million and £25 million.

Greg Warman has been appointed director of business banking and David Ellinor is director, commercial banking for Milton Keynes.

Greg runs a team of eight managers across eight branches and offices. David has a team of 10 managers based within the bank’s business centre at Silbury Boulevard.

Greg has more than 37 years experience in banking beginning his career with NatWest in 1973. He has held a number of managerial roles within the business banking channel and most recently was director, branch business banking for Bedford, Cambridge and Milton Keynes.

David has worked in banking for 34 years. He has also held a number of managerial roles within the commercial banking marketplace and most recently was director, business & commercial banking for South Bedfordshire and North Hertfordshire.

Mr Warman said: “We are changing the way we serve the Milton Keynes SME marketplace by providing management support to what we perceive to be two distinct markets. In doing so we are placing our most experienced managers, who are all local to the area with those customers who can benefit most from their knowledge and business contacts.”

Mr Ellinor added: “We remain committed to supporting our Milton Keynes based customers and their business aspirations. The closer we can get to our customers, the better we can support them. We believe this new local proposition, with dedicated experienced managers focusing on the business and commercial channels, will strengthen further our existing customer relationships and attract new business to the bank.”
