Hampshire Trust Bank makes key asset finance appointment

By -

Hampshire Trust Bank, the specialist bank, has appointed Vincenzo Scalzone as Head of Broker in its Asset Finance division.

In this newly-created role, Vincenzo will be responsible for further developing the bank’s Asset Finance broker business. A key focus will be further enhancing broker service, which will be done by continuing to invest in IT systems and broadening the bank’s proposition to the broker market. He will report directly to Jon Maycock, who was appointed as Managing Director of Asset Finance at Hampshire Trust Bank earlier this year.

Prior to joining the bank, Vincenzo, who has 20 years’ asset finance experience, was Head of Supplier Sales at Shire Leasing. He previously worked at companies including CIT, De Lage Landen and GE Capital.

Talking about why he decided to join Hampshire Trust Bank, Vincenzo said:

“It is an exciting stage in the bank’s journey and I am looking forward to helping shape the strategic direction of the division as we head into the next phase of development.

“Hampshire Trust Bank prides itself on establishing long-term business relationships. We want to work in partnership with our brokers, helping them to grow and develop their businesses. In order to do this we aim to offer a one-stop-shop by not only providing vehicle finance, but funding for a full range of soft and hard assets for anything from IT to catering equipment and plant and machinery. I am looking forward to helping broaden and enhance our proposition further.”

Jon said:

“We are delighted to welcome Vincenzo on board. There are a wealth of opportunities that the team here are well positioned to capitalise on and Vincenzo will help to drive the Asset Finance broker business forward.”
