Champ and Matthews to leave Shawbrook

Sales managers Marc Champ and Steve Matthews are to leave Shawbrook in order to pursue new opportunities.

They will work closely with the existing field sales team over the coming four weeks to ensure a smooth handover for their regions of London and the South East.

Gavin Seaholme, recently promoted to head of sales, will assume responsibility for bulk of the key accounts across this region.

Champ said: “I have been fortunate to work with some leading lights of the specialist market over the past three years and am hugely grateful for the experience. I look forward to working with Gavin over the next few weeks to make sure the transition is a seamless one, and that the brokers within the region are fully supported.”

Matthews added: “It’s been an incredible journey with Shawbrook, and at the moment it’s definitely half heartbreak and half excitement as I look at the next stage of my career in the industry. I value the close relationships that I’ve formed with our broker partners and the Shawbrook teams over the years, and wish everyone all the best for the future. There’s still plenty to do and I’ll be working with Gavin over the next four weeks to make sure the region is fully supported.”

Emma Cox, sales director, said: “We will miss the guys and I wish them all the best for the future. They have been part of the Shawbrook family for some time and I fully support their decision to grow their careers in another direction.

“With Gavin’s move into the head of sales role, it represents a great opportunity for him to focus on this key region where I have every confidence that he will build on their success, whilst driving the direction and the agenda of the wider national team.”
