On the move: the latest East Midlands hires

Pas De Silvia

Global recruitment specialist Forsyth Barnes has appointed a new head of solutions.

Pas De Silvia will lead the expansion of the Nottingham firm’s talent packages for the eTail, fintech and sports and entertainment industries.

Managing partner Roheel Ahmad said: “[Da Silva] has a proven track record of building pioneering solutions and driving innovation within our sector. Two traits that align perfectly with our company values and fit our roadmap perfectly as we innovate to become a bigger product-based organisation.”

Cambridge & Counties Bank has strengthened its asset finance team with the appointment of Dan Watson as business development manager.

Watson has worked in financial services for over 15 years, holding roles with the likes of Walbrook Asset Finance, Shawbrook Bank and NatWest. The past five years of his career have been dedicated to the asset finance sector.

The bank has also made a number of internal promotions. Neil Kitchen has become senior BDM and Tracey Burden has been made internal sales team lead.

Glen Christie-MacAllan, head of asset finance at Cambridge & Counties Bank, said: “Our asset finance business had an excellent 2022 and, with high-calibre individuals such as Dan joining the team, we are very well positioned for 2023.

“Asset finance can be an attractive lending solution for businesses, particularly in the current environment, and looking ahead we expect further growth given our broad and competitive product suite and the relationships we have with our trusted panel of asset finance partners.”

Dan Watson added: “Cambridge & Counties Bank covers every corner of the UK in terms of its asset finance coverage, with experienced individuals that can apply their skills and understanding to a broad range of customer requirements. In a crowded market we pride ourselves on doing things a little differently, delivering a high-quality service through dedicated expertise.”
