Mark Harrison, Director of Business Development said:

“Naturally we are delighted for both Natalie and Gemma. They are hugely important and integral members of our team and these promotions are testament to their dedication, ability and relentless hard work in getting the job done.

Credit Risk & Finance are two of the most important functions within any business, none more so than during the turbulent times we find ourselves in, so whilst these roles have taken on extra significance lately, we are firmly planning for the future and our continued growth and these promotions lay the groundwork for that.”
