IAN HENDERSON yesterday resigned as chief executive of challenger bank Shawbrook, after joining in December 2012.

The outgoing boss gave no explanation for his exit so soon after joining the bank.

Previously he was chief operating officer of Barclays Wealth, and had also been chief executive of RBS International, leading its business banking arms.

Henderson has been replaced by Richard Pyman, head of Shawbrook’s asset finance arm.

Pyman joined the bank when Singers Asset Finance was bought by Shawbrook in 2012.

“Richard’s appointment as Shawbrook’s new chief executive was the natural choice following Ian Henderson’s resignation. Richard possesses the essential experience of building a sustainable business based on customer satisfaction and has played a leading role in Shawbrook’s continued evolution,” said the bank’s chairman Sir George Mathewson.

“We wish Ian the very best for the future and thank him for the contribution he has made during his time at Shawbrook.”
