Barclays makes changes at the top of real estate unit

The UK bank reorganises its property team after the retirement of two senior bankers.

Barclays Corporate Banking has reshuffled its real estate team following the retirement of two senior bankers.

Nick Mayberry has joined Barclays as head of real estate for Scotland and the north of England, replacing David Hardcastle, who has retired; Jess Tomlinson has been appointed head of the south-east and east regions, to replace the recently retired Phil Edwards; Amy Crick, previously a transaction manager in Barclays’ specialist real estate team, has succeeded Tomlinson in heading the UK real estate transaction management team.

Mayberry rejoined the bank after a spell at rival lender Royal Bank of Scotland, where he spent the past two years leading the asset finance team for Scotland and Northern Ireland. He previously worked at Barclays for 14 years undertaking a broad range of client coverage and leadership roles.

Tomlinson joined Barclays from Blackstone in 2015. She worked as a principal in the real estate debt business at Blackstone and previously held several UK real estate roles at RBS.

Crick has previously worked at Pinsent Masons and Gowling WLG, acting for all the main UK banks and also corporate and real estate clients in corporate lending, restructurings, cross-border financings, leveraged and real estate finance.

“Such change gives us the opportunity to bring through the next generation of leaders to drive our real estate business forward, not just for continuity but also to further enhance and grow our real estate business,” said Dennis Watson, head of real estate at Barclays.
