Close Brothers Asset Finance’s Transport team announced it has appointed Kingsley Smith to the position of Dealer Manager in the Midlands to drive the team’s ambitious growth plans.
Kingsley, who has significant experience of the dealer market, will work closely with our manufacturing partners and dealer groups to further expand our offering to that market.
Kingsley said: “Having been an admirer of Close Brothers Asset Finance for a number of years, it was always an ambition to work for such a highly regarded and reputable company and I’m confident my finance and dealer background will help me to hit the ground running.
“Since joining, I’ve found the approach to finance and underwriting - in particular - incredibly refreshing in a demanding economic climate. The first few months into a new role are usually a good indication of what the future holds, and I can say I’m nothing but impressed.”
Andrew New, National Accounts Director, added: “Getting someone of Kingsley’s calibre on board further endorses our plans to grow our dealer business, a market we are fully committed to and where we are expanding our presence.
“As the economy continues to recover, we are looking forward to helping our dealer partners thrive through all economic cycles.”
