Skipton International has appointed a new Director of Credit as part of its plans to expand its lending base across the Channel Islands and increase offshore savings deposits.
Simon White joins the bank having worked in retail banking for more than 40 years.
He will be responsible for the underwriting of all residential and expat mortgages, while exploring new opportunities for the bank to build on its existing lending proposition.
"When you reach my age, it's important that you work in an organisation you thoroughly enjoy and one with which you share its values and ethics," Mr White said. "Skipton International is well known for having a fantastic and nurturing work culture and is always looking for ways to support the local community and give back to the island. For me, it's great to be part of a winning formula of good products, plans and people.
"Skipton is the expert at putting a very simple business model into practice effectively, but my hope is that we can now do more and do it better than ever before."
Managing Director of Skipton International, Jim Coupe added: "Simon's role is an integral one to the success and growth of our business and I have no doubt that his experience will make him an asset to our team."
The company recently extended the maximum term of its mortgages up to 40 years, in response to the increase in pension ages.
This year, Skipton International celebrates its tenth anniversary in the Channel Islands.
