Vijay will work in a team of specialist corporate relationship bankers delivering cash management, asset finance, structured finance and international trade solutions to businesses in the East Midlands. Vijay already has two years' experience working in the RBS CIB office in Nottingham as an assistant director and he knows the region well. He has developed first-rate experience of providing bespoke lending solutions to companies in a range of industrial sectors such as manufacturing, retail, pharmaceuticals and healthcare.
RBS CIB is continuing to invest and grow its East Midlands capability and in August this year, in an indication of its continued strong commitment to the wider Midlands region, the RBS Group appointed Andrew Harrison, one of its most senior bankers from the CIB team, as managing director for the Midlands and East of England.
Vijay Chauhan, credit manager, CIB, East Midlands, said: "The East Midlands is a robust regional economy which has in recent decades diversified from the traditional coal and textile industries to become a centre of excellence for innovation, services and manufacturing, among many others.
"My goal is to help clients grow and achieve their aspirations by developing a deep understanding of their strategy and providing funding solutions and business support which work for them."
Tom Cawley, Regional Director RBS East Midlands, CIB, said: "RBS is investing in its East Midlands corporate banking team and its business capability, and the appointment of Vijay reflects strong demand for professional banking services from firms in the region. We want to support the East Midlands economy and I am excited by the fact that we have the resources and people to meet this growing demand."
