New Business Development Director



Richard Winton is an experienced ABL professional with a track record of success in originating, structuring and implementing ABL transactions.


After graduating from Loughborough University with a First Class degree in Economics and Geography, Richard began his career at Lloyds Banking Group on their Graduate Scheme. After an initial focus on corporate banking, Richard moved into ABL at Lloyds where, after spells in Credit and Client Management, he secured a role in ABL sales, London.


Initially focusing on new to bank transactions for business with turnover between £25-100m, Richard was subsequently chosen to lead the ABL product for Mid Cap businesses in Central London, as part of a Global Transaction Banking team. This spanned Trade Finance, Corporate Asset Finance and Cash Management & Payments for businesses with a turnover in excess of £100 million. Additionally, his experience includes syndicated and off balance sheet transactions.


Richard has a history of exceeding targets over a number of years with particular success in generating new-to-bank business in the external ABL market.


Seeking a new challenge, Richard was attracted to BNP Paribas Commercial Finance by the diverse product range, the international ABL capability and the growth ambitions of BNP Paribas Commercial Finance.


 “I am excited by the recent growth and the breadth of capability at BNP Paribas Commercial Finance in the UK and across Europe and am thoroughly looking forward to joining the UK Sales Team and adding to their successes of recent years.”


Richard Winton


“Richard is a young and yet highly experienced ABL Sales professional and will add a new dynamic to the successful team we already have here in the UK. His drive and ambition are very well suited to playing a key role in achieving the ambitious targets we have set ourselves here at Commercial Finance and I look forward to working with him over the coming years.”
