Meet our Asset Finance team

11-07-2024|Anthony Gougeon , Marketing Manager

This year has seen Ultimate Finance achieve new record performances, notably in the provision of Asset Finance solutions where our loan book reached £100m at the end of the first quarter. With the first half of 2024 proving to be our highest-ever new business origination period, we are proud to have provided thousands of businesses with access to the right funding solution to help them keep moving.

With a strong start to the year already, we shine the light on our team and explore what motivates them and what they believe makes Ultimate Finance the funding partner of choice.

Our Regional Directors team

Jamie Glenn, Regional Director

Jamie joined as a Regional Director with Ultimate Finance in 2019 and, since then, has been continuously working hard to best support his broker network and our clients. Through his work, he helps businesses purchase assets key to their growth or to simply just keep moving and supports their cashflow requirements through the refinancing of existing assets to quickly access working capital.

When Jamie isn’t busy building his working relationships, he is either spending time with his family at his favourite spot, Whitby beach, or getting lost in the music he is playing as a DJ.

Daniel Sellwood, Regional Director

Dan started at Ultimate Finance in 2022 and brought with him over 10 years of experience in the industry. He has successfully pushed through barriers to support our brokers and help our clients reach their business potential. And by providing funding that really makes a difference, he has also been assisting businesses that find themselves at a crossroad.

Dan has two children, and is newly married, and when he’s not being a father or husband, he enjoys watching and supporting Southampton Football Club or playing on a golf course.

John Hallett, Regional Director

John started at Ultimate Finance in 2017, and since then has supported and maintained a high level of broker relationships and has been working with them to support more and more businesses across the country. With a passion for Asset Finance, his vast knowledge and experience in securing the right deal for his clients has seen many of our clients grow from strength to strength.

Although if asked his partner would tell us he works all the time, you can, on occasions, find John on a golf course or supporting Leicester Football Club.

Stephen Brook, Senior Regional Director

Since starting at Ultimate Finance in 2016, Stephen has always ensured he provides an excellent service to brokers, business owners and partners. He thrives on working with his introducer network, having worked with many of his contacts for over a decade now. Through funding hard assets and providing funding that can help make a difference, he is very proud to have already supported the ambitions of businesses across all industries and to have contributed to their success.

Dedicating most of his spare time to his daughter, Stephen also enjoys football and boxing, having competed in both in his younger years.

Our Broker Desk team

Bethan Holliday, Head of Broker Desk

Beth brings to Ultimate finance over 25 years’ experience in the finance industry, and since 2018 she has been leading our Broker Desk to where it is now. She has played a pivotal part in the growth and development of our business and is the heart of our Asset Finance division. Through her exceptional customer service skills as well as her ever growing sales technique our relationship management offering has reached new heights.

When she’s not developing great relationships at work, she likes to dedicate her free time to her husband and two children, with frequent holidays spent in their caravan in Wales or seeing the world on a cruise ship.

Amber Brownsword, Broker Coordinator

Amber joined our Asset Finance team in 2021 as an Administrator in our Pay-Outs team before becoming a part of our Broker Desk where she has been thriving on the rewarding aspect of the role, especially when working alongside our broker network to help a challenging deal get over the line.

In her free time, she loves to travel, with Nepal currently at the top of her bucket list or adding new shoes to her impressive collection of trainers.

Tansy Pratten, Broker Coordinator

Considered as one of the longest serving members at Ultimate Finance, Tansy joined the business when it was just a start up, and thus has experienced first-hand the evolution of our lending proposition. Having assumed many roles throughout the years, she is now part of our Broker Desk where she enjoys developing relationships with introducers.

Married to her childhood sweetheart, they share their home with their two lively children, and she enjoys weekends away to explore new places or sharing food and drinks with friends when she’s not exercising to keep on top of her physical and mental health.

Jenni Goosen, Broker Coordinator

Joining Ultimate Finance in 2024 as part of the Broker Desk team, Jenni provides support to our Regional Directors across the country and seeks out new business opportunities whilst ensuring a continual business growth. As a previous business owner herself, she understands the challenges that this can bring and is able to use her knowledge to help support brokers and help clients access the right funding solutions to help them meet their ambitions.

In her downtime – when that happens with looking after three children – she enjoys socialising with friends or watching the latest ‘must watch’ Drama series.

Ben Grisole, Broker Coordinator

Ben started in 2024 and, although he is the youngest member of our Broker Desk, he hasn’t’ let his age stand in the way of performance. He has been playing a key part within the team by supporting our Head of Broker Desk, Bethan, as well as our Regional Directors and their customers. No task is too big for Ben, and he will go out of his way to ensure brokers and business owners are happy with the solutions we provide them.

Ben enjoys snowboarding, so in his downtime, he is always thinking of the next spot to visit to get on the slopes.
