Finance lender, Mann Island Finance, has announced a key appointment with Andy Muir taking over as the business’s Head of Sales from Paul Power who will be retiring at the end of March.

Muir has been promoted from his previous role as a regional manager. With a brief to drive Mann Island’s lending activity through its network of over 40 experienced account managers operating across the UK.

Muir said “The transformation of the Mann Island Finance business from broker to lender has been an amazing journey. Having been part of this change over recent years, it is a great privilege to be entrusted with the opportunity to lead the sales drive. We are committed to working with the dealer community, adding value to them with our unique DNA and capabilities. Dealers can benefit from both our core lending capability and the continuance of our brokerage skills.”
