Specialist asset-based lender Ultimate Finance announces the promotion of Nick Haggitt to Head of Sales for the South. This promotion is part of a wider bolstering of the sales team on the back of a strong performance in 2020, when the funder provided £125m in new funding facilities and more than £1.5bn to SMEs throughout the UK.
Nick Haggitt has over 20 years industry experience and joined Ultimate Finance in 2018 to lead the South East & London sales team. His experience and ability in structuring complex funding solutions will ensure Ultimate Finance continues to be well placed to support its introducers and clients going forward. Nick takes over from Martin Bennison who is leaving Ultimate Finance to pursue a new opportunity.
As part of the strengthening of the sales team, further promotions include Laurence Trevaskis to Regional Director and Tom Adamson to Senior Business Development Executive, and the appointment of Monique Deledgar St Claire as Business Development Executive.
Andrew Ribbins, Group Sales Director at Ultimate Finance comments “I am extremely proud to see these people achieve promotions within our business, which is testament to our People Promise to champion each and every person and invest in their success.
With the best people, we can deliver the first-class service our introducers demand and provide the right funding solutions to their clients. With Nick leading the team in the South, we will continue to support SMEs with the necessary funding so they can continue to navigate the impact of the pandemic.
I wish Martin every success for the future, and he leaves as a friend to me personally, and the business.”
