Growth Street strengthens business development team




Growth Street has made two new business development appointments.

The SME lender has named Rob Kelly (pictured above) as its head of sales for the South and Rhys Price as a business development manager for the North.

Rob joins from Scottish Pacific Business Finance – where he was head of sales (UK) – and will work from Growth Street’s London headquarters.

He has also previously served at Barclays, ABN AMRO and Bibby Financial Services.

Rhys will expand Growth Street’s presence in the North West and be based in Liverpool.

Both Rob and Rhys will be educating their markets on Growth Street’s business finance product GrowthLine.

This comes as the lender targets significant growth in 2019.

Rob said: “Too many high street banks have deprioritised really intelligent support for growing businesses.

“I’m delighted to have joined Growth Street to support the needs of business owners across the South of England and Wales.

“Growth Street understands the challenges faced by SMEs, and the whole team share my passion for helping British businesses understand their options when it comes to finance.”

Julie Ashmore, commercial director at Growth Street, added: “We’re delighted to have welcomed Rob into the team.

“His experience will help us immensely as we continue to build out our UK-wide team.

“In 2019, we’ll continue building relationships around the country, not just with business owners, but with finance partners like brokers and accountants.

“Rob’s experience will enhance our offering and help us support more SMEs nationwide.”
