Gordons hires former HSBC player as consultant

Yorkshire law firm Gordons has appointed a former HSBC Yorkshire and North East head of corporate banking as a consultant.

Martin Lunt is a highly experienced senior corporate banker who worked in the sector for more than 40 years.

As HSBC’s head of corporate banking in the region, he was responsible for developing relationships with a diverse range of businesses achieving turnovers from £30 million to £1 billion.

He will work alongside the firm’s partners to implement Gordons’ business development strategy. Commenting on his new role, Martin said: “I know Gordons well from my time at HSBC. The firm has always been entrepreneurial and progressive.

“I also know many organisations across the North that would benefit from Gordons’ personable and commercially-focused approach,” he said.

“I’ll be making introductions to the leaders of those businesses and supporting the successful strategy the firm is currently implementing.”

Gordons’ clients include retailers AO, B&M, Heron Foods, Iceland Foods, Morrisons, Ocado and Wren Kitchens.

In addition, the firm acts for digital transformation specialist, boxxe; construction and high-performance materials manufacturer, Saint Gobain; and international brewers, Molson Coors.

Employing 200 people, Gordons has offices in Leeds and Bradford.
