THE Truro Financial Solutions Centre of Clydesdale Bank was joined last month by one of Cornwall's best known corporate bankers.
Julian Jenkins brings more than 30 years' experience to the firm.
He said: "I have been impressed by Clydesdale Bank's ability to resolve the majority of funding requests right here in the county."
David Bird, Clydesdale Bank's managing partner in the South West, said: "Julian will operate across all sectors but will also offer specialist hotel and leisure industry expertise.
"His knowledge and experience of Cornwall business makes him the ideal partner to enhance Clydesdale Bank's policy of ensuring that deposits we receive from local businesses are reinvested in local businesses."
