Funding Circle welcomes new BDM




Funding Circle has announced the appointment of Sarah Beard as its new business development manager.

Sarah will be responsible for overseeing Funding Circle’s introducer relations and promoting the lender’s commercial finance offering in the South West region.

Prior to joining Funding Circle, Sarah spent three years at Lease Plan as an account manager and three-and-a-half years at Hitachi Capital Business Finance, where she managed a portfolio of 30 introducers.

Sarah, who will be based in Bristol, said she was very excited about joining the company.

“I love their innovative approach to supporting small businesses – I’m passionate about supporting the backbone of the British economy, which is what drew me to Funding Circle.

“I look forward to building many great relationships with introducers in the South West of England.”

Neil Mullane, head of Funding Circle’s introducer team, said: “It’s great to have Sarah on board, she will be a huge asset to the introducer team.

“Her deep understanding of the introducer environment in the South West will be extremely valuable in what is a very important region for Funding Circle.”

In the final quarter of 2016, Funding Circle’s introducer team grew by 20%, while overall lending for the year hit £1.1bn.
