Specialist SME lender Aldermore has appointed Lesley Rolfe (née Baker) as head of asset finance operations, a key strategic role within the bank’s business finance team.

She joins with over 16 years of asset finance experience, having held a number of senior positions at Barclays, including head of asset finance and invoice finance operations, as well as roles in sales support and customer services.

Rolfe has also spent time at AA Insurance Services, Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide Building Society and Sun Life.

In her new position, Rolfe will manage the delivery and oversight of all asset finance operations from the origination of new business through to the final settlement of accounts. She will also support the bank’s activities in operational and business assurance risk management, which is a key focus for Aldermore.

Rolfe joins the bank’s business finance senior leadership team and will be reporting directly to Carl D’Ammassa, group managing director for business finance.

Rolfe said: “I’m delighted to be joining Aldermore at such an exciting and successful time for the business. I look forward to supporting the business to ensure that we have the systems and processes in place to deliver the highest level of service to our SME clients and brokers.

“I am also looking forward to working closely with Aldermore’s strategy team to ensure that our offering can be accessed by clients and brokers through whichever channel they choose, whether it be a face-to-face meeting, phone call or through their mobile phone or tablet.”
