UK-wide business finance provider Merchant Money has recently recruited several new employees across a range of functions including Business Development, Support, Credit and Finance.

All the new hires are a result of expansion and see the firm well placed to deploy further capital.

Commenting on the expansion, Chief Financial Officer Jonathan Stern said:

“Since our inception in 2013 our business model and product range has changed significantly.

We now work with an extensive, UK wide, broker network and have added specialist property finance to our unsecured and secured product portfolio.

As co-founder, I am proud that we are continuing to grow, not only in terms of our access to capital and loan book, but also in terms of providing career development opportunities to our team.

It is fairly unique to be recruiting at this level at a time when many businesses are replacing human interactions with technology. We prefer to operate a people centric business model, supported by technology when and where appropriate.

We value our strong personal relationships with our business introducers and our customers and having more quality staff members across the business allows us to focus on better serving both.”

The new hires sit alongside existing employee promotions.

The external appointments include:

Liam Thomas, Jacob Tate, Jake Bebbington and Eloise Walker-Smith as Business Development Managers, Tim Payne, Credit Underwriter and Brian Loakman in Finance Support.
