Crowdlending specialist ArchOver is expanding its team of regional representatives with the appointment of Dave Saddington and Fraser Irvine as channel managers for the northwest and northeast of England respectively.
They join Kerry Wilson, the recently appointed channel manager for the Midlands.
Says ArchOver commercial director Robert Jackson: “Direct personal relationships and the building of trust are extremely important in our sector and one of the best ways of achieving this is to have people in the region who can help us achieve new business and be our representatives locally.
“Their main aim will be to build strong contacts with business support companies, such as commercial finance brokers, accountants, independent financial advisors and solicitors.”
Fraser Irvine, who has been in the finance industry for 25 years, was previously responsible for recruiting new asset based lending business in Yorkshire and the Northeast for ABN Amro.
Says Fraser: “One of the reasons I was attracted to ArchOver was because I see it as an innovative, client friendly business that is helping SMEs find the financial help they need. I like to see businesses I have helped flourish.”
Bolton-born Dave Saddington has been in banking for more than 36 years. He joins ArchOver from his position as regional sales director for Platform Black, before which he was area business manager in the Northwest for Yorkshire Bank, during which time he built a large network of contacts in the area.
Says Dave: “My aim is to try to help businesses that the banks are unable to help. ArchOver provides what is otherwise unavailable in the marketplace. In particular I believe it is the fixed term loan provision instead of invoice discounting that is what businesses are crying out for.”
