Redwood Bank has appointed Sebastian Mrotzek (pictured above) as director of operations.

His multi-faceted role spans banking and credit operations, information technology and project management.

He has the responsibility of ensuring all activities are conducted in a regulatory compliant manner, while also making sure customers are well looked after.

With nearly 20 years of experience in the financial services sector, Sebastian has worked in many positions across commercial banks, start-ups and regulators.

Sebastian started out as a financial services analyst at Datamonitor, before moving to Citigroup, Accenture, HSBC Global Asset Management, Barclays Retail and Business Bank and Lloyds Bank Global Transaction Banking.

After this, he held senior roles at the PRA and was a member of the Bank of England’s technology and projects board.

Before joining Redwood Bank, he was deputy COO and head of banking operations at Heyman AI Limited.

“I am thrilled to be joining such an experienced team at both management and operational levels,” said Sebastian.

“Redwood Bank has a genuine passion for achieving great customer outcomes and I’m excited to become part of its journey as it continues to develop and grow. 

“Working in a challenger bank provides me with the opportunity to influence the direction of the company, without the constraints of legacy systems and set ups. 

“In addition, it also provides a platform in which one can engage in the end-to-end operations.”

Gary Wilkinson, CEO and co-founder of Redwood Bank, commented: “This is a key role as it supports the smooth running and full operations of Redwood. 

“We are impressed by Sebastian’s vast and varied experience and general management approach. 

“There’s no doubt he’s set to become a very welcome addition to the Redwood team, and we welcome him with open arms.”
