One Stop Business Finance appoints SME funding specialist for East Anglia
One Stop Business Finance, the independent SME funding specialist which grew its loan book by one third in just three weeks in March, has appointed a highly experienced Business Development Manager to work with clients across East Anglia.
Ed Harrison is tasked with helping SME customers in all industry sectors across the region. He brings a wealth of financial services experience to the One Stop Business Finance Team, which will be invaluable in helping the company continue on its ambitious growth path.
Ed first began working in financial services offshore in Thailand and Singapore for two of the largest Independent Financial Advisers. Upon his return to the UK he worked for several lenders/brokers prior to his move to One Stop Business Finance, which he says was driven by the importance to him of working with genuine industry professionals.
Ed says: “The family-like culture of One Stop Business Finance, and the fact that we all feel we can contribute to the direction in which the business is driven, are added bonuses that were somewhat unexpected but absolutely welcomed.” His entrepreneurial spirit is demonstrated by his own business achievements during his time away from the UK. Whilst overseas Ed and his family opened a skydiving/parachuting facility serving the leisure requirements of Hong Kong and Singapore based expats.
Andrew Mackenzie, One Stop Business Finance Managing Director adds: “We are thrilled that Ed has joined our ever growing team. He will add to our knowledge pool and strengthen the business, and his experience and relationships will be crucial to keep our ambitious plans on track.
“As we continue to grow, responsible lending will always be our priority, as will finding the right finance solutions for our expanding customer base. We pride ourselves on our ability to be a flexible funding provider with the capability of offering truly bespoke solutions.”
