Six new managers have been appointed by Barclays to run branches across Birmingham.

This follows a number of promotions within the bank which has enabled individuals to move up the career ladder.

Colmore Row branch will be managed by James Heron who has been with Barclays for five and a half years. James has previously undertaken personal banker and assistant manager roles.

Commenting on his appointment, James said: “I am excited by the challenges that lie ahead. My main objective is to lead the team to ensure that we offer exceptional service to our customers in the Birmingham area.  

“As part of my drive to improve customer service, I am planning to host a series of events in the branch, where customers can come and hear about a range of financial topics which may be of interest to them.”

Deborah Bissett who has worked for Barclays for thirty two years will manage the Northfield branch whilst Kings Heath and Moseley branches will be managed by Antonia Saunders.

Meanwhile, Shabir Jivraj will have responsibility for Cape Hill branch and Peter Webb will manage the Maypole branch.

Commenting on these appointments, Richard Smalley, Regional Director said: “I am delighted to see promotions within the organisation and for our staff to be given the opportunity to further develop their careers. I am confident that I have a good team here in Birmingham who will ensure will deliver a high level of service to our customers.”

These latest appointments come on the back of the Bank’s decision to open a new flagship branch in central Birmingham. The new High Street branch opened on 10th May and Barclays has organised an official opening ceremony including the ‘Barclays Live’ dance competition with Brendan Cole, taking place on Saturday 5th June.
