News - 09 June 2021

ABN AMRO Commercial Finance is pleased to announce the recent expansion of its mid-market team with 2 new exciting appointments as part of its commitment to supporting mid-market business in the UK.

Simon Penn and Patrick Madden have recently joined ABN AMRO, reporting to Head of Sales, Jeremy Harrison. Simon and Patrick join us from Siemens Financial Services, following the recent announcement that Siemens are exiting the UK invoice discounting market. Together they will add vital support to the geographical reach in our UK coverage, notably North West and South West of England.

Jeremy Harrison, Head of Sales, ABN AMRO Commercial Finance “Simon and Patrick each bring with them a wealth of experience and will further enable us to deliver the best possible Invoice Finance and working capital solutions, and build long-term, sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships with UK SME’s.”

As part of its commitment to mid-market businesses, ABN AMRO Commercial Finance UK is also building upon the improved way of working, resulting from last years’ Covid Task Force. The Task Force will now be dedicated to streamlining the onboarding process, making it both easier and faster for businesses with turnovers of up to £5m to access funding solutions.

Simon Lefevre, Managing Director, ABN AMRO Commercial Finance “As UK mid-market businesses emerge from the pandemic and seek growth opportunities, we want to open up space for them to succeed and in being their financial wingman, fulfil our contribution to the Banks NW European growth strategy.”
