OSBF and Time Finance bolster teams

One Stop Business Finance and Time Finance have added new members to their specialist finance teams.

One Stop Business Finance

One Stop Business Finance (OSBF) has appointed Steve Norton, Sarah Aylward and Kelly West as business development managers.

They will work across both the lending and brokerage side of the business and will serve the company’s growing client base chiefly across the Midlands and East Anglia, where it aims to meet SME demand for finance solutions.

Previously, Steve worked at Renaissance Asset Finance, while Sarah and Kelly joined OSBF from Farmers Guide and Santander, respectively.

OSBF has also promoted Rebecca Ennis to business development director to head the company’s client-facing team. 

In her new role, Rebecca, who previously worked with clients in the East Midlands region, will be supporting her colleagues and clients in all areas and businesses in any industrial sector.

“I am very excited about the medium- and long-term expansion plans we have for the business,” said Rebecca.

“We have such a strong, bright team bringing a vast array of skills to the whole business and, of course, to other businesses that we do and will collaborate with — so I can’t wait for the results to show.”

The lender expects to see strong growth for its services across the board in the next 12 months, which has driven the need for additional personnel. 

Over the past year, it has experienced two of its busiest and most profitable quarters in its seven-year history, despite the impact of the pandemic and availability of government support schemes.

Time Finance

Time Finance has recruited Abbie Mosley as a broker manager for its asset finance division.

In her new role, she will be responsible for building and maintaining broker relations in the North of England and helping to meet clients’ needs for their innovation and growth.

Abbie previously worked in both client-facing and supplier management roles at Bluestone Leasing. 

“I am absolutely delighted to be joining Time Finance at what continues to be a crucially important time for UK businesses,” she commented.

“As government support schemes begin to wind down, more SMEs are turning to asset finance solutions to facilitate their long-term investment strategies. 

“I’ll be using my experience to continue building strong broker relations and helping their clients to invest in new equipment which will keep momentum high in their continued recovery.”

The announcement follows a number of recent appointments and promotions within Time Finance, including Ed Rimmer to permanent CEO, Rebekah Middleton to head of hard and soft asset, and Joe Ralphs to head of operations.

Carol Roberts, director of asset finance at Time Finance, added: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Abbie to our growing team. 

“It comes at an opportune time where demand for finance is high and, with a national sales presence, we can react to opportunities swiftly, ensuring businesses get the funding solutions they need to grow and thrive. 

“It’s a pivotal time for businesses; investment for growth has never been more important.”
