Lloyds Bank appoints new head for the North West

Lloyds Bank Corporate & Institutional Banking has appointed a new head of its North West team supporting large corporate and institutional businesses in the region.

Chris Yau, based in Lloyds Bank’s Manchester office, will lead the North West-based team as it continues to increase its support of businesses across the region with revenues of £100m and above.

He will be responsible for leading Lloyds Bank’s key activities and initiatives across the North West, as well as recruitment of talent aligned to the bank’s ambitions for the region. In his new role Chris will serve as Regional Head of the North West for the Bank’s Corporate and Institutional Banking division and as Director of Origination and Sustainability for its housing team.

Chris joined Lloyds Bank in 2018 from RBS, where he had spent 11 years as a relationship director for businesses ranging from mid-market businesses through to large corporates.

In his current role as director for origination and sustainability for housing, Chris is helping the sector in its transition to a low carbon economy through the delivery of ESG and sustainability finance, as part of the bank’s ambition of shaping finance as a force for good. He has recently advised on financing support for L&G, Platform Housing and Alliance Homes.

Chris said: “The North West has shown itself to be one of the most resilient, thriving, and exciting places to do business in recent years.

“It is incumbent on organisations like Lloyds Bank to ensure that both larger businesses already based in the region and those considering it as a home have the support needed to grow. The presence and success of these business across the North West doesn’t just benefit the area with employment but also to those smaller businesses that support them and their supply chains, which is why I am committed to ensuring our team are focused on providing the assistance and help they need.”

Mark Burton, UK Head of Regions at Lloyds Bank, said: “We are proud of the role we play supporting businesses in sectors like manufacturing, tech and life sciences that will fuel the economic growth and innovations of tomorrow. That is why the North West is a key region for us.

“Chris brings extensive experience and expertise of corporate banking needed in this new role to bolster the support we’re providing businesses across the North West.”
