YBS Commercial hires Pratt as relationship director
Yorkshire Building Society (YBS) Commercial Mortgages has appointed Gary Pratt as relationship director for its Wales and the South West team.

Pratt brings over two decades of commercial finance expertise to the role. He previously worked as a corporate and relationship manager at Handelsbanken, and has guided numerous businesses in expanding its commercial property footprint, and assisting property investors to build their portfolios.

He was also an associate at Clydesdale Bank for eight years and worked for Barclays for over nine years, most recently as business manager.

Pratt will be based in the YBS Commercial Mortgages office in Bristol, utilising his network to support brokers and customers in the South West region, including Devon and Cornwall. He will be joining his South West team colleagues including senior relationship director Sue Lewis, and fellow relationship directors Kayleigh Parry, Lucy Partridge and Tim Wraith.

Pratt (pictured) said: “I am delighted to join YBS Commercial Mortgages and hope to assist in the growth aspirations of the organisation, particularly in the South West but also all over the UK. I am passionate about supporting existing and new brokers, who are the lifeblood of our business.”

Allan Griffiths, regional director for the Wales and the South West team, said: “We’re committed to supporting the commercial market, especially during these times of volatility in the market. Absolutely key to this is providing dedicated support to our brokers – wherever they are – through our regional teams, who sit at the heart of our business.”
