United Trust Bank has appointed Nathan Mollett (pictured above) as its new head of asset finance.

Nathan — who has over 20 years of experience in the industry — will take up his new position at UTB later this year from Metro Bank, where he has been working as director of the asset finance division since 2015.

Prior to this, he was the sales director at Wesleyan Bank.

Nathan is also a board director at The Leasing Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that supports the business finance sector through innovation, the development of young people, diversity, and inclusion.

Harley Kagan, group managing director at United Trust Bank, said: “Nathan has an exceptional track record in the asset finance industry and his success in growing Metro Bank’s [division] is testament to his experience, business acumen and leadership skills. 

“We are aiming to grow UTB’s asset finance lending considerably over the next few years, and his knowledge and strong industry relationships will be hugely beneficial to the bank in helping us to meet the challenges ahead.”

Commenting on his appointment, Nathan said he was delighted to be joining UTB.

“I have been impressed by both their passion for customer service and commitment to the broker market. 

“In asset finance, they have a business with strong foundations, a great reputation with brokers and real potential to win a larger share of the market."
