Enhancing our Burton Transport team with new appointments

Close Brothers Asset Finance today announced 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.

Mark Wilson (left) – who has over 25 years’ experience in asset and commercial finance, including both direct and broker, joins the company in the newly-created role of Corporate Sales Manager. He will be looking to utilise his knowledge of assets to open new doors in the sector and provide customers with viable alternative funding solutions.

Robbie Wilkes (right) – who joins as Dealer Manager – will be using his decade’s worth of experience in the captive truck market to grow the dealer-introduced business to further Close Brothers Asset Finance’s presence in the industry.

Sharon Chalkley, Managing Director of Close Brothers Asset Finance’s Burton Transport office, commented: “Mark and Robbie are exciting additions to the team; they’re both experts in their respective areas who can speak the customers’ language, which is a critical skill to have and particularly important because these are new roles.

“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, which we’ve done. Bringing them on board is a continued demonstration of our long-standing commitment to supporting the transport SME community.”
