Adrian Payne appointed as Head of Sales for southern Invoice Finance team

Time Finance are delighted to announce that they have secured Adrian Payne as Head of Sales in their Invoice Finance division. The appointment is reflective of the firm’s ambitious growth plans to expand their national sales presence and help more businesses access the funding solutions they need to grow and prosper.

In his new role, Adrian will be responsible for leading and managing the sales team in the South of England as they continue to work with their extensive broker networks and package uniquely structured Invoice Finance solutions for their growing client base.

Adrian brings a wealth of experience and a credible reputation to the role having worked in the sector for almost a decade. Starting his career as a Business Development Manager, Adrian sought to build a strong broker network of his own and support UK SME owners access the finance they need to achieve their growth plans. As a high performer, he progressed quickly and worked his way up the ranks to become a Regional Sales Manager at Aldermore before moving on to become a Regional Director at Ultimate Finance. In his most recent role as Head of Sales for Bibby Financial Services he was responsible for generating awareness of their product offerings across the South West of England and managing a sales team of 6.

Speaking of his appointment, Adrian comments: "It’s an exciting time to be joining Time Finance. There’s a definite momentum in the market with investment high on the agenda and many business owners are looking for cashflow funding solutions to help capitalise on new business opportunities.

“I’m looking forward to leading a dynamic and committed team who have already built an excellent reputation for delivering creative funding solutions that inspire the confidence business owners need to take their businesses to the next level. Over the years, I have watched Time Finance grow from strength to strength, and now with a robust multi-product offering in place, I believe they are well-placed to help fuel this growth.”

Phil Chesham, Head of Invoice Finance at Time Finance, added: "We are delighted to welcome Adrian to Time Finance as we continue to expand our team and bring great talent into the business. He will undoubtably be a great addition given his proven track record of delivering new business targets and leading regional sales teams to success.

“Invoice Finance continues to be a valuable and staple finance solution for businesses who are looking to release additional working capital to fund innovation and growth. We have ambitious growth objectives to continue enabling UK firms to do just that and Adrian’s appointment will help us in achieving this.”
