Specialist small business lender, Ashley Finance, has appointed Scott Brown as its new Regional Sales Director for the West Midlands.

Brown joins from RBS Invoice finance, where he had a successful three years within the commercial finance team. Prior to that, he spent four years covering the Birmingham area for Natwest’s commercial finance division and, earlier in his career, worked at Barclays retail.

Rob Mercer, Senior Regional Director at Ashley Finance, welcomed Scott on board: “We are delighted that someone with Scott’s proven industry experience and knowledge is joining our team. He is a great fit for Ashley Finance and will have a key role to play leading sales in the West Midlands, which is an important region for our business.”

Browns’s appointment comes at a time when Ashley Finance is looking to expand its sales presence in key regions – an important move in helping provide customers with quicker response times, enabling them to access the right funding when needed.
