Close Brothers Asset Finance today announced that it has appointed industry specialist, Alistair McCallum, to further enhance the company’s presence in the north of Scotland and drive business growth in an important market for the company.
Alistair, who joins from Santander Commercial Bank, has spent the past 40 years in the Aberdeen area, gaining significant expertise in B2B sales, management and business development. He will be responsible for The Angus, Aberdeen and North of Scotland, Moray and Inverness and Highlands and Islands areas.
“The know-how he has built up and local knowledge in developing strong relationships with businesses of all sizes and types has stood him in good stead and will be invaluable in dealing with anyone looking for sound advice and assistance,” said Jackie Cooke, Managing Director of the Scotland team.
“Close Brothers Asset Finance is looking 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, covering every sector of business and commerce.”
Alistair added: “I am very much looking forward to my new challenge with Close Brothers Asset Finance and as well as talking directly to business owners, I am aware that there are many accountants and business consultants in the region who are frustrated with the lack of funding for SMEs and are seeking help for their clients to fund new projects and who are trying hard to expand their business or looking to buy another business.”
