FUNDING Circle has promoted former business development manager Shaun Jennings to regional manager in the South, as it moves to increase its presence in the South of England and Wales.
Jennings first joined Funding Circle in 2015, having previously worked at Hitachi Capital, where he helped to secure some of their largest long-term contracts in the e-commerce space.
In his new role, he is expected to help grow the platform’s network and streamline the onboarding process for new borrowers via introducers such as brokers.
“I’m incredibly excited to be joining our strong leadership team as we look to build even closer relationships with introducers across southern England and Wales,” said Jennings. “At Funding Circle, we are hugely passionate about delivering a slick process for our introducers, with leading technology and first-in-class people. I’m looking forward to working with the team to build on this even further and revolutionise the introducer experience.”
“Shaun has been a valued member of Funding Circle over the past five years, and more importantly, an asset to our business development team,” said Jeremy Crinall, head of broker at Funding Circle.
“Promoting Shaun into the role of regional manager is testament to his hardworking nature and passion for delivering quality service to our introducers. I look forward to seeing him and the team go from strength to strength as we build on our vision for 2020, focusing on service as a key driver.”
