Debt recovery firm Aberdein Considine has appointed the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Colin Soulsby to a newly-created relationship management role.
During a four-decade career in financial services, he worked across a range of banking areas including branch banking, international and corporate.
He has 24 years of experience in debt management, with particular focus on managing legal suppliers.
His role at Aberdein Considine will focus on supporting the delivery of volume legal services to lender clients across the UK.
Soulsby has been involved in debt counselling, supporting those customers in most need, particularly during life-changing events, and was the bank’s key liaison for all charitable and related money advice organisations, including UK Finance, Money Advice Trust, Money Advice Scotland, Citizens Advice and Citizens Advice Scotland.
Myra Scott, head of the lender services practice group at Aberdein Considine, said: “As a multi-jurisdictional supplier of banking litigation and debt recovery, our practice has grown significantly over the past few years. This brings unique challenges.
“Colin’s experience will be invaluable and his appointment will support the growing range of complex, non-standard mortgage litigation, asset and debt recovery cases that the firm is handling.”
