Aldermore, the specialist bank, has appointed Tim Boag as its new group managing director of business finance.
He has been working on an interim basis at Aldermore since June last year with overall responsibility for invoice finance, asset finance and commercial real estate.

He was also on the management board of Lombard Asset Finance and was a director on the board of the Business Growth Fund (BGF), a company established to invest directly in SMEs.
His appointment is subject to regulatory approval.
