Business funding provider V4Bprofessions has recruited additional staff in a bid to cope with increased demand in a buoyant market.
Following a record-breaking January for the company, it has appointed Daniel Barnes as account manager and Liz Evans as administrative support.
The appointments follow Aaron Leclercq’s appointment as business development manager in November and form part of a continued recruitment drive.
Barnes joins from Bluestones Medical where he was a recruitment consultant. Prior to that he was business development manager at Creative Play which designs playgrounds for UK schools and holiday parks.
Evans was previously receptionist at sister company Vehicles for Business and brings several years’ administrative experience to the role.
Pete Hollingsworth, director at V4Bprofessions said: ‘We’ve had a phenomenal start to the year, outperforming all records since the company began.
‘We have recently moved into a purpose-built office and following Aaron’s appointment we saw the need for a larger workforce. The new appointments will help drive business even further and continue the success we have experienced so far.
‘Following on from the uncertainty of Brexit, it looks like UK businesses are investing in infrastructure and gearing up for a positive new future outside of the European Union.
‘According to the Finance and Leasing Association total asset finance to new business grew to £2.5bn in November 2016, representing a 13% year-on-year increase. An increase V4Bprofessions as a business cannot ignore. The demand for alternative business funding is still high as SMEs continue to either not receive traditional bank support or seek additional types of credit to support cash flow and growth. A classic example is short-term, three-month VAT funding, there’s been massive growth in this area.’
Additional recruitment is planned this year as the company is expected to continue to grow. If you’re an experienced account manager in the professions and asset finance sector, contact us on 01978 668 939 to discuss your next career move.
