RateSetter Business Finance has appointed Amanda Sharp as Regional Relationship Manager for London and the South East.
Amanda, who previously spent 35 years with RBS Group – 20 years of which were in the Business and Commercial division working with SMEs, most recently in Chelmsford, Essex – has joined RateSetter to concentrate on helping local businesses achieve fast decisions on larger and more complex borrowing requirements. Part of her role will also be to develop strong working relationships with finance brokers in her area.
Commenting on her new appointment, Amanda said: “I am passionate about helping SMEs to reach their goals, so I’m excited to be joining RateSetter in this role. I pride myself in providing a good customer experience and I am always looking to exceed expectations. This is an exciting time in my career and I am looking forward to the challenge.”
Paul Marston, Managing Director RateSetter Commercial Finance, commented: “This is an important appointment for us because building personal relationships with our SME borrowers forms a vital part of our proposition, combining great people with our first class application and approval technology. Senior people with Amanda’s experience and knowledge are very hard to come by and we are pleased to be welcoming her to our expanding team of Regional Managers, particularly at a time when the banks are reducing their headcount in this area.”
RateSetter Business Finance recently passed the £400m landmark for new business lending, having only opened its doors for business last summer.
