In their new roles, they will be responsible for dealing with finance requests from small businesses and constructing suitable debt facilities for potential clients.
And finally, David Hardman has taken on the role of credit manager and will be responsible for credit sanctioning. He previously spent 35 years at NatWest/RBS, where he held credit manager and relationship director roles.
“These appointments follow another hugely successful year in 2017 as we continue to grow strongly,” said chief executive Stuart Law. “We continue to attract highly experienced team members to handle the high level of enquiries that our competitive offering is generating.
“With companies across the country increasingly looking at P2P as a viable funding solution, we continue to strengthen our team with the appointments of relationship directors in the wider regions as well as continue to grow our credit team.
“With this in mind, we are delighted to welcome Karl, Jason and David on board. Each of them brings a wealth of experience to the business and will certainly support the progression of Assetz Capital in the North West and South Yorkshire.”
