One Stop Business Finance team expands to support growing client base
Fast-growing Yorkshire-based SME funding specialist One Stop Business Finance has expanded its team with the creation of two new posts to enhance its customer service and operational infrastructure.
The company, which provides loans from its own funding and its network of finance providers to SMEs across the UK from its East Yorkshire HQ near York, has appointed Michelle Foggin as Business Finance Broker and Dawn Stone as Office Manager. They join One Stop Business Finance as it experiences significant expansion in its client base, demonstrated by its year-on-year growth of 100% driven by increasing demand from businesses who are seeking an ethical lending partner or have faced issues when using traditional funding channels.
Michelle brings a wealth of customer service experience to One Stop Business Finance, having previously worked as a sales negotiator for an agency in the residential property market, prior to which she worked in the recruitment and childcare sectors. Her passion for delivering great customer service will bolster the team dedicated to serving existing clients and she will also help to expand the company’s brokerage side.
Bringing eleven years’ experience as a finance officer in the education sector, Dawn will play a pivotal operational role as One Stop Business Finance grows, helping to deliver consistency, accuracy and professionalism across all areas of the business.
Dawn’s extensive experience in budget planning management, as well as organising individuals and teams, having worked in a range of different organisations, will help to strengthen the company’s infrastructure, as Andrew Mackenzie, Managing Director at One Stop Business Finance, explains.
“The recruitment of Dawn and Michelle further strengthens the One Stop Business Finance team,” says Andrew. “These appointments bring a high calibre of support to me, Liz Booth our Financial Controller, and our expanding Business Development function. I am delighted to have a robust structure in place to support the latest new recruits to our Business Development team, when they start with us over the course of the next three months.”
