The FINANCIAL -- Barclays Corporate Banking has announced new senior appointments to its real estate industry team as it consolidates its leadership structure and looks to grow its presence in the market.

Nick Mayberry has joined the team as Head of Real Estate for Scotland and the North of England. With 16 years financial services experience, Nick joins from RBS where he spent the past two years leading the Asset Finance team for Scotland & Northern Ireland. Prior to that, Nick worked at Barclays for 14 years where he undertook a broad range of client coverage and leadership roles, including Corporate Director for the Media industry sector and Head of Global Payments for the wider Barclays Group, according to Barclays.

Following her move from Blackstone to Barclays in 2015 to run Transaction and Asset Management for the real estate team, Jess Tomlinson has been appointed Head of the South East and East in the new leadership structure. At Blackstone, Jess worked as a Principal in the real estate debt business and prior to that she held a number of UK real estate roles at RBS, beginning her career with 6 years at Allen and Overy as a real estate finance lawyer.

Amy Crick, who previously was a transaction manager in the specialist real estate team for almost five years, has succeeded Jess Tomlinson in heading up the UK Real Estate Transaction Management team. As a qualified lawyer, in her previous roles at Pinsent Masons LLP and Gowling WLG (formerly Wragge & Co), Amy acted for all the main UK banks and also corporate and real estate clients in corporate lending, restructurings, cross border financings, leveraged and real estate finance.

Nick replaces David Hardcastle and Jess replaces Phil Edwards who have retired after long careers in banking and both left the bank with our thanks and very best wishes.

Announcing the new appointments, Dennis Watson, Head of Real Estate at Barclays Corporate Banking, said: “The real estate leadership team has served our ambitions very well for many years but succession is a natural evolution in every business. Such change gives us the opportunity to bring through the next generation of leaders to drive our real estate business forward, not just for continuity but also to further enhance and grow our real estate business. One thing that hasn’t changed is our appetite for and commitment to this vital sector and these are three very strong appointments with each colleague possessing the skills needed to help us bring in new clients, as well as supporting existing clients, as we look to grow our franchise in the real estate sector.”
