Wharf Financial appoints commercial finance broker


OFFA joins

Leigh on Sea based broker Wharf Financial has appointed industry veteran Simon King as commercial finance broker.

Simon brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to Wharf Financial having spent over 40 years with the Lloyds Banking Group, and 43 years in the banking industry.

During his time at Lloyds Bank, Simon founded and developed the SME Inward Investment Team, assisting the expansion programs of many hundreds of overseas based companies into the UK.

Simon’s passionate commitment to customer service led to the exponential growth of his team, as well as an intermediary network that spanned from Cape Town to San Francisco.

Following his departure from Lloyds, Simon completed some 18 months on a high profile banking remediation project, where he assessed complex complaints regarding commercial lending (property and trading) in the SME sector.

Marc Champ, Managing Director, Wharf Financial said:

“Simon is exactly the type of person we want within our organisation. Massively experienced and understands the fundamentals of exceeding customer’s expectations.

We are looking forward to Simon opening doors for ourselves and our clients. Welcome aboard Simon!”

Simon King, Wharf Financial added:

“It’s fair to say that I’ve witnessed a huge amount of change to the banking industry over the last 40 years, but one constant theme has always been the overriding importance of exceeding customer’s expectations.

Having known Marc for over 10 years now, I know that he is a great champion of this approach, and I’m really excited to be joining him and the team at Wharf Financial Services.”
