Rob Lankey has been appointed Interim CEO of the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB).
The Interim CEO will take over from Adam Tyler, who is standing down after 11 years at the helm.
Lankey starts with immediate effect to assist with the handover.
The new boss left Aldermore at the end of June 2016 after nine years, and was formerly Managing Director of Commercial Mortgages and Property Development Finance.
Previously he led the development of Norwich & Peterborough Building Society’s commercial mortgage business for 17 years until, in 2007, he became the Executive Director of Lending and Operations at a new start-up commercial lender, Base Commercial Mortgages.
In a statement the NACFB says Lankey has been a 'massive supporter' and 'advocate' of the organisation for over 20 years. He also spearheaded Aldermore’s three-year sponsorship in 2010.
Paul Goodman, NACFB Chairman, commented: “Rob’s worked for over 25 years at senior Patrons of the NACFB and is a well-respected, leading figure in his market place. [He] brings vast experience of not only the specialist and intermediated commercial finance sector but also the proven ability to install structure and governance in businesses - an essential attribute for the Association as we evolve in this ever challenging regulated environment. A true innovator and excellent business leader, we’re thrilled to secure his services.”
Rob Lankey added: “I’ve been closely involved with the NACFB since the mid-nineties and have always been a strong supporter of its ambitions and aims. I’m excited about the opportunity to help Paul and the Board of the NACFB as it embarks on the next step of its journey. I’ve been a good friend of Adam Tyler for many years now and am honoured to follow in his footsteps.”
