Lloyds Bank Corporate & Institutional Banking has strengthened its Transaction Banking Solutions team with the appointment of Maria Shaw, as Managing Director, Head of Card Payments.
Shaw joins Lloyds Bank from Barclaycard, where she held multiple roles during her 22-year tenure. Most recently she was the Customer Engagement and Growth Director with the responsibility of supporting its SME customers, launching new propositions, and improving services.
In her new role, Shaw will be responsible for new business and proposition enhancement for Lloyds Bank’s merchant card customers, through its Cardnet joint venture. This is a newly created role and Shaw will be based in London. She will report to Alex Young, Managing Director, and Head of Transaction Banking Solutions.
Speaking on Shaw’s appointment, Young said, “Maria’s considerable experience in the card payments space will help us meet the demand and drive from our clients seeking our support on card payments, alternative payment methods, and integrated gateway solutions.
“Our clients continue to invest heavily in their e-commerce and payments capabilities and under Maria’s leadership, the team will help our clients enhance their customer experience.”
Maria Shaw, MD, and Head of Card Payments, Lloyds Bank Corporate & Institutional Banking, said, “Alex and his team have demonstrated a real focus and clear vision when it comes to delivering the holistic solutions that corporate clients require. The card payments space continues to see considerable innovation and growth. I look forward to working with Alex and the team across the business to help continue to deliver the solutions our clients need to meet their growth ambitions.”
Shaw’s appointment follows several MD hires in the Transaction Banking Solutions team, including the appointment of Mansour Davarian in November to head up its Corporate Trade Finance and Working Capital Sales team. Most recently, Iain Wyper was appointed to lead the Corporate Cash Management & Payments team.
