YBS appoints Angela Norman as head of lending

Angela Norman has been appointed by YBS Commercial Mortgages as its new head of lending.

Angela has worked in the industry for over 25 years, accompanied by hands-on experience leading teams as director of strategy and propositions at Recognise Bank, and senior manager roles at Royal Bank of Scotland — she has also worked at a series of high street fintech challenger banks.

She will be leading the regional lending teams and working closely with the regional directors and their teams, while being based at the YBS head office at Broad Gate in Leeds, but will spend much of her time travelling around the country, supporting the regional teams.

Commenting on her appointment, Angela said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at such an exciting point in the business’s growth journey — I am passionate about bringing teams together to create a high-performing culture that focuses on providing exceptional customer experiences, and I look forward to playing my part in delighting our commercial clients and delivering the goals and aspirations of the business.

Tom Simpson, managing director at YBS Commercial, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome Angela to the team and believe that, with her fantastic blend of strategic and customer facing experience in commercial lending, and in depth understanding of the brokers and investors we serve, she’ll play a crucial role in our ambitions to expand the business and provide even better service and support to our clients as we move forward into the future.”
