Truro-based Ignition, a leading provider of vehicle and asset finance for UK SMEs, is continuing its expansion with the appointment of Richard Bowley as Business Development Manager.
Richard brings with him 27 years’ experience in the South West business community, including 11 years as Relationship Manager at Lloyds Banking Group where he was responsible for a portfolio of more than 200 SME clients across the region.
Ignition offers finance for a wide range of assets from plant and machinery to vehicles and business equipment, either using its own funds or via joint trading relationships with a panel of major finance houses. In his new role, Richard will be looking to maximise new business opportunities predominantly across Ignition’s heartland in Devon and Cornwall.
Richard Bowley comments:
“I’ve worked with SME’s in the South West for many years, and it’s clear that there are many opportunities for these businesses to grow by taking advantage of the competitive and flexible solutions that Ignition can provide. I’m looking forward to getting out into the business community, meeting new prospects and devising some great finance packages to help SMEs in the region thrive.”
Paul Caunter, Managing Director at Ignition, comments:
“It’s an exciting time for Richard to be joining us, hot on the heels of a number of other appointments including Ele Smith as Business Development Manager and Tony Holton as Sales Manager. With a strengthened team we will be increasing our presence in the business community, maximising opportunities, and consolidating our reputation for outstanding customer service.”
