Barclays today announces the appointment of Husam Khoury as a new relationship manager covering North and West Yorkshire.

Based in Leeds, Husam will specialise in serving the diverse and specialised banking needs of corporate clients across North and West Yorkshire.

Husam brings with him over fourteen years banking experience from both the UK and overseas and was most recently supporting Business Banking clients across Yorkshire. Khoury also has a strong academic background with an MA in Banking and Finance.

Commenting on his appointment, Husam said: “It’s great that I have been able to progress my career within Barclays in Yorkshire and I can’t wait to start my new role, meeting both new and existing clients. I already have strong links with the local professional community and will need to build on these with new contacts across the wider region.”

John Laud, head of corporate banking for West & North Yorkshire said: “It’s great to welcome Husam to the team. Our investment in a new relationship manager provides a better structure for our colleagues to progress their careers within Corporate Banking whilst also allowing us to keep our customer relationships as local as possible. Our aim is still to be the first choice banking provider to corporates across Yorkshire and we will be progressing this goal with vigour throughout 2022 and beyond.”
