Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank adds to agriculture team

Shaun Glover has been appointed as agricultural relationship manager for Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank.

He will work with agribusinesses across the North West, including Lancashire Derbyshire and Cheshire. He offers 20 years of experience delivering tailored financial solutions.

Shaun said: "I’ve always been a relationship manager and have gained invaluable knowledge working in all aspects of the farming industry, mostly recently with farming enterprises in the Channel Islands. I’m originally from the North West myself, so I’m applying my two decades of banking experience across this region. 

"In my role with Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank I am collaborating within a strong team to offer specialist financial guidance to farmers across the North West. That means building personal relationships with farmers so I can really get to understand their businesses and their needs."

Brian Richardson, head of UK agriculture at Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank, added: "Farming and the wider agricultural industry is in a period of change, and the Bank is working closely with our clients to navigate these changes.

"Covid-19 obviously threw another element into the mix, but we are still dedicated to facilitating innovate business plans, from diversification strategies to capital investments for a carbon-neutral transition, and Shaun’s appointment will increase our ability to do this."
