Venture Finance Bolsters Midlands Fast Track Finance Team

Published: Thu Jun 03 2010

Premier independent Invoice and Asset-based lender, Venture Finance,, is strengthening its Midlands Fast Track Factoring team with the appointment of Giles Senter as Business Development Manager.

Giles joins Venture Finance’s Birmingham office to capitalise on the growing appetite for Fast Track Factoring in the Midlands region. A continuing shortage of traditional finance means that Factoring is becoming increasingly attractive to Black Country manufacturing firms looking for working capital to quickly finance growth in the upturn.

As part of the Midlands’ team, Giles will work with local businesses to ensure that they have enough cash flow to meet the recovery with strength, whilst developing introducer relationships. He will also look to increase enquiries from introducers and generate further interest in factoring services in the region.

Giles has spent seven years working in the banking and finance industry. He joins the Venture Finance team from Bibby Financial Services and prior to this he worked for RBS Invoice Finance.

Giles Senter, comments, "I’m really excited about this role. With the right funding, the Midlands region has great potential for growth – especially in manufacturing. Local firms have already realised this and are increasingly looking to Factoring to access the finance they need in a way that responds sustainably and automatically to growth in sales performance"

Debbie Bell, Midlands Regional Director for Venture Finance, comments, "It’s great to have Giles on board. Venture Finance is highly committed to the Midlands Region and we are growing our team accordingly. There is a fantastic opportunity in the area to help businesses grow post-recession - Giles will be invaluable in helping us do this."
