We are delighted to welcome back Mike Wall to the SWIG Finance team. Mike previously worked with us until 2019 as a Business Manager and is now taking over the role of Portfolio Manager from Brian Steer, who is retiring after nearly 14 years’ service.
A former commercial lending manager, primarily with Barclays Bank plc, with well over 30 years’ experience throughout all aspects of “front line” banking, Mike has particular expertise in terms of understanding the financing needs of ‘SME’ business clients, and how these may need to adapt and change over time as new challenges or opportunities present themselves.
Outside of work, Mike enjoys his cycling, gardening and kayaking. He recently managed to cycle up the legendary Tour de France mountain ascent, “Le Mont Ventoux” – slowly!
Mike said “It feels great to be rejoining SWIG Finance, albeit wearing a slightly different hat as before. Brian has left behind very strong foundations and I am very much looking forward to helping this company continue to make a positive impact in the local SME market.”
SWIG Finance Managing Director, John Peters said: “We’re delighted to welcome Mike Wall back. Mike is a very popular team member and is extensive credit management experience and local knowledge will be invaluable to us as we continue to serve the South West SME market to the best of our ability in these challenging times.”
