Bank expanding Glasgow operation
HSBC has appointed a new senior commercial director.
Sandy Cunningham joins the Glasgow team from Clydesdale Bank.
He has spent 26 years in the industry and was most recently corporate partner at Clydesdale.
He said: "I am looking forward to meeting existing clients, as well as establishing contact with other key businesses in and around Glasgow who are interested in developing long term and fruitful relationships with their banking partner.
"I was attracted to HSBC because of its ambitious plans to accelerate its growth in Scotland combined with its excellent reputation."
David Scott, area commercial director for the west of Scotland, said: "HSBC has actively courted and attracted a number of excellent new clients and as a consequence we continue to invest heavily in the growth of our business.
"That sustained growth in business has required us to increase our resources to ensure we have the capacity and capability to meet the needs of all of our clients.
"Throughout his career, Sandy has acquired extensive knowledge and contacts across the commercial banking landscape in Scotland and he will be an integral part of the Glasgow team."
