Leumi UK welcomes new head of commercial finance

Specialist bank Leumi UK has appointed Roy Shilo (pictured above) as head of commercial finance.

He has previously held positions at both Bank Leumi USA and Bank Leumi Israel, before joining Leumi UK in July 2019.

In his new role, he will lead the commercial finance activity — formerly known as international, commercial and hi-tech finance (ICH) — which encompasses trade finance services and bespoke products that address everyday banking needs of SME customers.

He will be responsible for developing the business in line with the bank’s growth strategy.

“I am immensely proud to be leading Leumi UK’s commercial finance team and look forward to consolidating this innovative offering for our customers,” said Roy. 

“As ever, we remain dedicated to finding tailor-made solutions that support their business needs as they strive to achieve their growth potential.”

Andy Mallin, chief business officer at Leumi UK, added: “Roy has been with us for just over a year and, in that time, he has made a big impression as a true champion of the customer. 

“His enthusiasm when it comes to seeking out new opportunities with clients is unparalleled and, under his leadership, we will further our reach in both the Israeli and UK markets.”
