Cornerstone Commercial names head of complex funding solutions

Cornerstone Commercial has promoted Ian Pottle (pictured above) to head of complex funding solutions.

In his new role, he will support the company’s portfolio of SMEs, working as a trusted business partner and helping to secure larger, complex finance deals.

Ian will work alongside the Cornerstone team to understand business’s needs in the short-, medium- and long-term, ensuring finance deals are structured appropriately. 

He will also personally manage cases from the outset through to completion.

Ian has over 40 years of experience within the commercial lending sector.

He joined Cornerstone Commercial back in January last year as an operations director, having previously worked at NatWest for most of his career.

Ian said: “I am delighted to be moving into this role at Cornerstone. 

“Post-Covid, we are expecting an uplift in businesses seeking finance and many won’t know where to turn for financial support, thinking high street banks are the only solution. 

“We are here to help and our job is simple: we work with businesses to understand their ambitions and where there are funding gaps, and source appropriate financial products that fill this and help them to achieve their business goals. 

“I am excited to support businesses across Wales and the rest of the UK to reset and rise to the challenges of the current market.”

Haydn Thomas, CCO at Cornerstone Finance Group, added: “Ian’s track record and reputation speaks for itself and we are delighted to have him onboard.”

Cornerstone Commercial is part of the Cornerstone Finance Group, a hub of financial industry experts offering specialist interlinking services.

The group consists of commercial finance, commercial insurance, wealth, finance and protection.
