YBS Commercial hires two relationship directors for the North
YBS Commercial Mortgages has appointed two relationship directors to the lender’s North team.

Alaster Leslie has worked in commercial banking since 2015, and joins YBS Commercial from TSB, where he worked for nearly six years, first as commercial operational support manager, then business development relationship manager. 

He also worked at RBS for eight years, most recently as a business manager. 

Leslie has experience working with small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), and at TSB, he worked with firms to help them obtain funding solutions. 

Kim Donovan has also joined the YBS Commercial Mortgages team, and she has worked in the sector for more than 38 years. 

This includes five years at TSB, most recently as a business development manager (BDM), as well as 39 years at Lloyds Banking Group holding various roles such as BDM, branch manager and, most recently, commercial banking relationship manager. 

Leslie said: “I’m really excited to join the North team during this growth period. Having seen the positive impact YBS Commercial Mortgages is having on the sector, I’m really looking forward to being part of this journey, supporting SMEs and working with new and existing stakeholders to provide fantastic service to our clients”.

Donovan added: “I am delighted to join and share the business’s goal of achieving growth within the commercial mortgages sector, all delivered in line with our commitment to providing the best possible outcomes for our brokers and their clients.”

Mark Heckels, regional director for the North team at YBS Commercial Mortgages, said: “I’m so pleased to welcome Alaster and Kim to the business, and I look forward to seeing the contribution I am confident they will make.

“This recruitment drive demonstrates our commitment to strengthening our regional teams to ensure we provide the best possible support to the commercial market, and to all our clients.” 

Last month, YBS Commercial Mortgages hired Angela Norman in the newly created role of head of lending.
