We are happy to announce that we have appointed two experienced Transport specialists – in the Corporate and Dealer space - as we continue to expand our offering and drive business growth in the Transport sector.
Jonathan Cooley (pictured right) joins the company in the newly-created role of Corporate Sales Manager. His primary focus will be the Transport and Logistics sector, concentrating on increasing wallet share in this space. Jonathan is an asset finance professional with close to 20 years’ experience gained at some of the major names in the asset finance sector.
Alan Cardy, who has significant experience in the truck and van space, joins as Dealer Manager with the responsibility of bringing onboard new dealership opportunities. Before starting with Close Brothers Asset Finance, Alan had spent his whole career with Mercedes-Benz commercial dealership, Orwell Truck and Van, where he was in the top two retail van salesmen in the UK for Mercedes-Benz.
Andrew Buswell, Sales Director for Close Brothers Asset Finance’s Transport division, commented: “Jonathan and Alan continue the company’s tradition of bringing in experts who speak our customers’ language. This was particularly important because these are newly-created roles and we needed to bring in individuals of the highest calibre who were able to hit the ground running and quickly establish themselves in their respective areas.
“Bringing them on board is a continued demonstration of our long-standing commitment to supporting the transport SME community through all economic cycles.”
