Barclays has appointed two new relationship directors to join its East Midlands Corporate Banking Team.

Lee Ekins, who has worked in the financial sector for over eighteen years has joined the team and will be supporting medium size corporate clients in the Leicestershire area. He first joined Barclays at the age of 18, starting in Retail and soon after moving into Corporate Banking where he has worked in both leadership and client management roles.

Ekins is joined by Rebekah Taitt who joined Barclays in 2012 on a Leadership and Development Programme in conjunction with studying at East Anglia Ruskin University. She has worked across Corporate, Wealth and Retail Banking with her latest appointment in the SME Business Banking team for the past three years.

Head of the East Midlands at Barclays, Keith Ross, said: “I am delighted Lee and Rebekah have joined the team, their respective experience will prove to be invaluable. Leicestershire remains a very important market for Barclays and the announcement emphasises our commitment to support this growing economy. We continue to increase our client base and the new appointments ensure we have sufficient resource to continue the current trajectory.”
