Time Finance continue to expand Invoice Finance team with Thomas Ludden appointment
Time Finance is pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas Ludden as Business Development Manager in its Invoice Finance team.
Tom joins the alternative finance provider with over 14 years’ experience in Invoice Finance. He enjoyed roles in both client services and business development at Bibby Financial Services, before moving to Giant Pay (Outsauce) whereby he specialised in delivering Invoice Finance solutions for the recruitment sector. Mostly recently, he held a position as Regional Director in Ultimate Finance’s Invoice Finance team.
In his new role at Time Finance, Tom will be responsible for building and maintaining strong introducer relations across East Anglia, the East and West Midlands, supporting their clients with tailored funding solutions.
Speaking of his appointment, Tom said: “I am really looking forward to becoming part of the Time Finance team. Their extensive product range caters to the unique needs of each business, packaging tailored solutions that are right for each client. It’s great to join a team who really value the relationships they build and service they deliver. I look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with my existing intermediary base and making some new connections along the way.”
Tom’s recruitment is the latest in a string of appointments at Time Finance in recent months. With plans to double its Invoice Finances sales team in 2023, the business recently welcomed Neil Fullbrook and Casey Baldwin as Business Development Managers, covering the South East, North East and Lincolnshire regions.
Adrian Payne, Head of Sales (South) at Time Finance, added: “We are thrilled to have Tom join our team. His extensive experience in the Invoice Finance sector and proven track record in business development makes him a valuable addition to the company.
“As a national sales team, we are committed to delivering valuable and staple finance solutions to businesses who are looking to release additional working capital for additional headroom and growth. We have ambitious growth plans to continue enabling UK SMEs to gain easy access to Invoice Finance solutions, and as we continue to expand our presence across the UK Tom’s appointment is key to helping us to achieve this”.
Invoice Finance can relieve the pressure on cashflow and give businesses the freedom to grow. By releasing up to 90% of the value of unpaid invoices, businesses can access additional working capital and use the funds to support day-to-day cashflow requirements or fuel investment plans. As well as Invoice Finance solutions, Time Finance provides Asset Finance, Business Loan, Vehicle Finance and Asset Based Lending solutions, and supports more than 10,000 business owners across the UK.
In May this year, the alternative finance provider reached a lending milestone with the delivery of its first Asset Based Lending facility. The £1.1million facility comprised a £650,000 Invoice Finance facility and £450,000 Property Loan. The deal was packaged as a result of rising demand for multi-product funding solutions and Time Finance’s commitment to provide flexible and innovative solutions to businesses across the UK.
