Barclays Keith Ross

Barclays has announced the appointment of Keith Ross, as Head of Corporate Banking in the Midlands Region. Keith will lead the 30 strong team of Relationship Directors across the East and West Midlands who look after corporate clients with a turnover in excess of £6.5 million.

Keith has a diverse background having ran a chemical manufacturing business after graduating. He joined the financial services sector in 2004, and has held a number of roles, including Trade Director as well as Relationship Director. He joined Barclays in 2011, originally as a Relationship Director, before leading the East Midlands Corporate team from 2013.

Ross said: “It is a honour and privilege to have been asked to lead the Midlands Region, and I am really looking forward to playing my part in continuing to support businesses across the region to ensure they continue to be successful. Covid-19 has undoubtedly changed the macro economic landscape but I am genuinely proud of the level of support Barclays has extended to its client base through the various Government schemes and initiatives. As of this week, this represents over £19 billion of new and additional funding, nationally, as a consequence of the Pandemic.”
