Paragon has announced that it has made two new appointments to its Vehicle finance team.

Alan Timms has joined the specialist lender as a Regional Sales Manager to source and develop new business in the commercial vehicle sector while Kat Schorah joins him as an Assistant Relationship Manager.

Timms has been in the industry for 28 years, cutting his teeth as an account manager in the retail motor finance sector before moving on to work in commercial vehicle and general asset finance at financial institutions including Royal Bank of Scotland and Hampshire Trust Bank.

Schorah will be one of the key contacts responding to enquiries and proposal queries for non-regulated wheeled asset specialist business introducers after a career in the motor and fleet industries including at Venson Automotive Solutions and Scania.

Dale Trenam, Sales Director for Vehicle finance at Paragon, said “These new appointments are set to strengthen the Vehicle finance team further with the experience and knowledge that Alan and Kat have had in the industry.”
