SME working capital solutions specialist Scottish Pacific Business Finance UK has announced a senior appointment. Rob Kelly has been appointed as senior business development manager at Scottish Pacific Business Finance UK, with the key responsibility to head up sales and develop new business through Scottish Pacific’s new central London office.

Scottish Pacific head of international finance, Craig Michie, said the business had been rapidly growing since the UK presence was established two years ago. Michie said Rob Kelly’s appointment would expand a strong sales performance that had been focused on trade finance but that would now also include invoice finance solutions. With more than 25 years’ experience in the finance industry, Rob has previously worked in senior roles with Bibby Financial Services, Ashley Commercial Finance and most recently ABN AMRO Commercial Finance.
