Aldermore hires head of ESG and sustainability

Aldermore Bank has appointed Tom Harding (pictured above) as head of ESG and sustainability.

Tom joins the bank from MotoNovo — Aldermore Group’s motor finance brand — where he worked in commercial sales and helped develop green initiatives across the group, such as the transition of the company’s car fleet to electric vehicles to reduce carbon emissions.

In his new role, he will continue to build on the bank’s ESG strategy.

Commenting on his appointment, Tom said: “I’m thrilled to be taking up this new role. 

“The ESG agenda has long run through much of the work we do at Aldermore, as we have a strong track record of serving those in society who have not been looked after well by the mainstream banks. 

“Formalising a new ESG strategy is an important next step and will allow us to have a greater impact as a responsible business, that is able to give something back to society.”

Steven Cooper, CEO at Aldermore, added: “Since joining Aldermore last year, I’ve been impressed with the bank’s commitment to being a responsible business that carefully considers its impact on the communities in which it serves. 

“However, I want us to go further and faster, and I’m proud we’ve now appointed a new lead for ESG to drive this important agenda into the future. 

“This new-found focus will help us to do more to promote an inclusive society and support a greener way of living in the UK.”
