RBS has strengthened its regional structured finance team in the South of England with two new appointments and a promotion.
Stefan Gunn and Rebecca Jarrett both join the team as directors and will cover Solent, Thames Valley, the South West and South Wales. In their new roles Gunn and Jarrett will be responsible for originating, structuring and executing debt transactions for existing and new to bank clients, focusing on both corporate and private equity-backed businesses. Peter Glinn, who joined the bank in 2015 through its apprenticeship programme, has been promoted to assistant director.
Gunn qualified as a chartered accountant in 2006 and shortly afterwards took up a position with Deloitte in Bristol where he spent four years in their corporate finance team advising on acquisitions, disposals and Main Market listings. In 2010 he transferred his corporate finance skills to HSBC where he worked with mid-market companies, supporting private equity transactions and corporate acquisition activity.
Jarrett joins the team from international law firm Clifford Chance in London where she was a senior lawyer in the structured finance group. She has spent the past 12 years advising national and international corporate and financial institutions on strategic debt financings, asset management and M&A. She has been primarily based in London but has also spent time working in New York and Paris.
Jonny Wright, head of regional structured finance, South, said: “I am pleased to announce the promotion of Peter Glinn to assistant director and the appointments of Stefan and Rebecca as directors in the team. Pete joined RBS’s apprenticeship programme in 2015 and has held various roles in commercial and private banking. His promotion shows what a great success the RBS apprenticeship programme can be in bringing talent into RBS and then developing it. Stefan and Rebecca both bring a great deal of knowledge in all areas of the corporate finance and debt capital markets and their experience further consolidates the wealth of experience that our team seeks to offer our SME and corporate clients.”
