Bathgate Business Finance appoints new business development manager

By Mersey Maritime

West-Kirby based finance specialist, Bathgate Business Finance, has continued its expansion plans with the appointment of asset finance specialist Tracey Hamilton as its new business development manager.

Tracey, who has more than 20 years’ experience within the business banking and asset finance industry, joins Bathgate from Close Brothers Asset Finance. In her new role she will be responsible for growing the company’s existing client base.

She brings to the team experience from working for some of the UK’s largest banks and funders, as well as her knowledge of asset finance within the manufacturing sector.

“I am looking forward to using my knowledge and experience to build strong relationships with new and existing clients, as well as working closely with Bathgate’s exceptional team to forge the company’s position as the North West’s go-to funder,” said Tracey.

“Bathgate Business Finance is passionately committed to supporting businesses to find the right kind of financing and its network of funders and own book positions it perfectly to provide this support.”

Bathgate managing director, Gordon Andrews, added: “Tracey’s understanding and knowledge of the manufacturing sector and the challenges that businesses in industry face will be invaluable, not just to our existing customers but also in facilitating the growth of our own business in that sector.”
