SME lender, Unity Trust Bank, has appointed Colin Fyfe as its CEO.

Colin succeeds Deborah Hazell who stepped down from her position as CEO at year end.

Colin said: "Unity’s very strong track record, its social purpose and driving ambition are compelling.

“Personal service and relationship banking combined with community good is a great proposition for all SMEs and socially-conscious organisations. I’m delighted to be joining as CEO.”

Alan Hughes, chairman of Unity Trust Bank, said: “I’m very pleased to announce Colin’s appointment. Unity has grown four-fold since it became independent in 2015 and Colin will be a driving force for the next stage of Unity’s progress.

“Colin joins Unity with a strong record of innovation, transformation and growth.

“On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Debbie for her commitment and wide contribution to Unity. Most notably she has improved our approach to impact, delivered the new digital banking platform for our customers and raised Unity’s profile externally. We are grateful to her.”
