Santander rebrands commercial banking units

The commercial banking wings of Abbey and Alliance & Leicester were yesterday renamed under the Santander brand.

Santander-owned Abbey UK Corporate Banking and Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank were rebranded Santander Corporate Banking.

A total of 20 regional corporate banking centres will undergo the name change this year, including centres in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Hull, Liverpool, and Reading.

Centres in Nottingham and Manchester will be the first to be rebranded.

“By bringing together the local knowledge of Alliance & Leicester’s regional corporate banking centres, the specialist sector knowledge of Abbey’s corporate banking teams and Santander’s credibility as one of the strongest and best capitalised banks in the world, we can provide customers with a very compelling banking service,” said Steve Pateman, head of Santander Corporate Banking.

“We plan to expand our regional network and are recruiting additional relationship managers, giving us the opportunity to develop close relationships with local businesses helping them through some of the challenges they may now face towards longer-term success.”

Abbey’s credit cards have already been rebranded under the Santander name, whilst the consumer banking branches of Abbey and Alliance & Leicester, along with sister-bank Bradford & Bingley, are set to be rebranded next year.
