The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) has appointed Rob Lankey interim chief executive officer, effective immediately.

He has replaced Adam Tyler, who stood down in October after 11 years.

Lankey joined the NACFB from Aldermore where he served as managing director of commercial mortgages and property development finance.

He has also worked at Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, and Base Commercial Mortgages, before the latter merged with Ruffler Bank to become Aldermore, which is a senior Patron of the NACFB.

Paul Goodman, NACFB chairman, said: “Rob’s worked for over 25 years at senior Patrons of the NACFB and is a well-respected, leading figure in his market place.

“A true innovator and excellent business leader, we’re thrilled to secure his services.”

Lankey said: “I’ve been closely involved with the NACFB since the mid-nineties and have always been a strong supporter of its ambitions and aims.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to help Paul and the Board of the NACFB as it embarks on the next step of its journey.”
