Steve Sprigens

Relationship Director

Tell us a little about yourself – how long have you worked for Barclays?

All my working life, so over 30 years now.

Strangest place for a client meeting?

I have been to the houses of a few CEOs, and met clients unexpectedly at sporting events such as matches at Twickenham a few times.

Tell us about a time you’ve helped your client with something beyond banking?

I have made many introductions over the years between clients. A couple have helped old clients secure jobs, and others have led to co-investment between contacts.

What is the most exciting thing happening in your client's industry?

Tenant and buyer demands continue to change, and the property owners/ developers are working hard to find the most modern working environment for their tenant’s employees. The ESG agenda is just starting to change the industry and will have a dramatic effect on future investment I am sure.

If you didn't work for Barclays, what would you be doing?

I would still be in the industry, as I get a real thrill out of what I do.
