HANDELSBANKEN Basingstoke has two new colleagues working at its Matrix House offices in Basing View.

Neil Harrington has joined the Swedish-owned bank as corporate banking manager.

He has 29 years’ experience working with a UK high street bank, the majority of which have been spent working in the corporate sector. The Leicester City FC fan, who has lived in Basingstoke since 1967, said: “Following a period of commuting into London, I’m delighted to be working with businesses in the local area.”

Lynn Muggridge has clocked up 24 years in banking and has joined Handelsbanken as an account support manager.

Having worked in various customer-focused roles, the busy mum, who enjoys Zumba and the occasional jog, said: “I’m delighted to be working with Handelsbanken and I’m looking forward to the traditional approach of customer service that I will deliver to our customers.”

Handelsbanken opened for business in Basingstoke in 2008 and prides itself on its decentralised approach to banking.
