Former Aldermore MD Lankey joins NACFB as interim CEO


Former managing director of commercial mortgages and property development finance at Aldermore, Rob Lankey, has been appointed as interim chief executive of the NACFB.

Lankey will take up the role from Adam Tyler (pictured) who is stepping down after 11 years in the role.

Lankey left Aldermore at the end of June 2016 after nine years and was one of the key players in the start-up team.

Previously, Lankey led the development of Norwich & Peterborough Building Society’s commercial mortgage business for 17 years until he became the executive director of lending and operations at start-up commercial lender, Base Commercial Mortgages, in 2007.

Lankey has been a massive supporter and advocate of the NACFB for over 20 years and spearheaded Aldermore’s three-year sponsorship in 2010, which included a beneficial override scheme, generating significant income for the Association in 2012 and assisting its relocation from Exeter to the Capital.

NACFB Chairman says Paul Goodman: “Rob’s worked for over 25 years at senior Patrons of the NACFB and is a well-respected, leading figure in his market place. Rob brings vast experience of not only the specialist and intermediated commercial finance sector but also the proven ability to install structure and governance in businesses – an essential attribute for the Association as we evolve in this ever challenging regulated enviroment. A true innovator and excellent business leader, we’re thrilled to secure his services.

Rob Lankey say: “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. I’ve been a good friend of Adam Tyler for many years now and am honoured to follow in his footsteps”
