New Business Development Director

We are delighted to announce that Tim Durham will be joining us as a Business Development Director.

Over the last 22 years, Tim has worked extensively in the passenger and freight rail leasing markets in the UK, Europe and USA.  After having spent 10 years at Angel Trains, Tim managed the Lloyds Rail Capital and Corporate Asset Finance businesses at Lloyds Bank until 2013. During this time, Tim was responsible for restructuring and eventually merging the HBoS / Lloyds Rail £1bn portfolio into profitable entity.

As consequence of the sale of the Lloyds Rail Capital business to Macquarie, Tim went on to manage the Macquarie European Rail business until it was sold to Akiem Group in April 2020. In addition to his rail responsibilities, Tim had Director oversight of the aviation and helicopter leasing businesses.  In his role as Business Development Director, Tim will work closely with Steve Timothy, Stakeholder Director as we look to grow our business model.

We look forward to Tim joining the team from mid-September.
