Aldermore appoints head of operations for asset finance PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 September 2016
Aldermore, the specialist lender and savings bank, has announced the appointment of Lesley Rolfe (née Baker) as the Head of Asset Finance Operations, a key strategic role within the Bank’s Business Finance team.

Lesley will manage the delivery and oversight of all asset finance operations from the origination of new business through to the final settlement of accounts. She will also support the Bank’s activities in operational and business assurance risk management.

Lesley has also joined the Bank’s Business Finance Senior Leadership Team and will be reporting directly to Carl D’Ammassa, Group Managing Director for Business Finance.

Lesley joins Aldermore with over 16 years of asset finance experience, having held a number of senior positions at Barclays, including head of asset finance and invoice finance operations, as well as roles in sales support and customer services. Additionally, Lesley has a strong background in operational and business assurance risk management frameworks – a key focus for Aldermore in the years ahead.

Lesley’s financial services career extends beyond Barclays, having spent time at AA Insurance Services, Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide Building Society and Sun Life.

Commenting on the news, Lesley Rolfe said: "I'm delighted to be joining Aldermore at such an exciting and successful time for the business. I look forward to supporting the business to ensure that we have the systems and processes in place to deliver the highest level of service to our SME clients and brokers.

“I am also looking forward to working closely with Aldermore’s strategy team to ensure that our offering can be accessed by clients and brokers through whichever channel they choose, whether it be a face-to-face meeting, phone call or through their mobile phone or tablet.”

Carl D’Ammassa, Group Managing Director, Business Finance at Aldermore, said: “Aldermore’s Business Finance division is continuing to grow at an impressive rate, giving us the opportunity to expand our team and improve our operations and processes to drive this growth even further and improve the level of service we are able to offer UK SMEs. I am confident Lesley’s experience will make a difference to our asset finance operations and wider business as a whole, and I look forward to continuing to develop the business well into the future.”
