Lloyds appoints head of trade PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 23 August 2017
Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking has appointed a new SME head of trade for its Global Transaction Banking (GTB) division. 

Based in London, with a national remit, David Weatherhead will lead a team of trade specialists to expand the support Lloyds Bank offers SME exporters and businesses looking to trade internationally for the first time.

He will be responsible for a range of products and services designed specifically to help SME clients export with confidence, including trade and export finance and Lloyds Bank’s recently launched International Trade Portal.

Joining from the Bank’s Mid Market’s team, David will report to Andrew Charnley, national sales director for Lloyds Banking Group SME GTB.

Andrew said: “We recently conducted some research which showed that nearly a third of British businesses expect their exports to increase over the next six months, and David’s international trade experience will see him play an integral role in how we support these firm’s ambitions.”

David added: “We’ve pledged to support 5,000 first-time exporters in 2017 as part of our Helping Britain Prosper plan, so this is an exciting time to join Andrew’s team.

“Small to medium-sized businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and we have a range of tailored solutions to suit firms’ import and export needs.”

Lloyds Bank’s International Trade Portal is designed specifically to help businesses identify and prioritise the best overseas opportunities for their products or services and mitigate the potential pitfalls they might face.
