Brightstar Financial has appointed a new commercial finance specialist, Paul Debney, due to increasing demand for commercial finance.
Debney has more than 30 years’ experience in the banking and finance industry and has been a bank manager for over 20 years.
Robert Collins, director of commercial finance at Brightstar, said: “After another successful year for commercial business, we are pleased to welcome Paul to Brightstar, who I am sure will be a great addition to the team due to his extensive experience and his track record of delivering results.
“Paul’s appointment and the diversification of the commercial division are ways of ensuring our productivity remains high and ultimately allows us to become even more specialist in even more areas of commercial finance.”
Debney previously worked in the SME and corporate banking sector since 2000, having worked with HSBC until 2007 when he moved to Clydesdale Bank.
Brightstar’s commercial finance division, which is now made up of a team of seven, is also introducing sub-divisions covering a range of finance options including trading business and real estate as well investment and development and unsecured business lending.
Collins added: “These new sub-divisions will help us to specialise in more areas and keep up with the unprecedented demand, while also delivering the same high service levels for our expanding clientele.”
