Aldermore appoints Alan Oliver as head of external comms
Aldermore has appointed Alan Oliver, Nationwide’s long-time ex-PR boss as its head of external communications.

Oliver brings 25 years of communications experience to his new role – predominately in the financial services sector.

Formerly the head of external affairs at Nationwide Building Society, Alan oversaw its mutual campaigning agenda, its response to the economic downturn, as well as several mergers and acquisitions.

Over the past year, Alan has operated as a consultant, representing several organisations within the financial services sector and beyond.

Holly Marshall, director of corporate affairs, at Aldermore said: “We are delighted to welcome Alan to Aldermore as we embark on the next stage of our journey as part of the FirstRand Group. Alan brings to the role a wealth of award-winning communications expertise, and we look forward to working with him as we continue to grow the bank’s message and brand going forward.”

Alan Oliver, head of external communications, at Aldermore said: “I am very excited about joining Aldermore. It’s a bank with a refreshing culture, strong values and an innovative approach to helping homeowners, savers, professional landlords and SMEs.

“They are doing a great job in supporting individual customers and the UK economy. I’m looking forward to helping to raise awareness of a bank committed to providing banking as it should be.”
