Close Brothers Asset Finance today announced that it has appointed industry specialist, Martin Mackenzie, to further enhance the company’s presence in the north of Scotland – specifically Inverness & Moray - and drive business growth in an important market for the company.
Martin, who is a graduate of Close Brothers Asset Finance’s highly-regarded Sales Academy programme, re-joins after three years away building his motor sales experience, where he specialised in cars and LCVs.
“I am absolutely delighted to welcome Martin back to the team as an Area Sales Manager,” said Jackie Cooke, Managing Director of the Scotland team. “Martin is from Inverness and has already been using this know-how and local knowledge to develop strong relationships with businesses of all sizes and types.
“This will stand him in good stead and will be invaluable in dealing with anyone looking for sound advice and assistance. Martin is a key part of our commitment to add real value to the business community in the area with a flexible and streamlined approach to supporting and funding small to medium enterprises as they look to finance various assets.”
Martin added: “Because of my previous experience with Close Brothers Asset Finance, I have been able to hit the ground running, talking directly to business owners. There are real opportunities for accountants and business consultants who are frustrated by the lack of funding for SMEs and are looking to help their clients fund new projects; expand their business or even looking to buy another firm.”
