Ultimate Finance continues to expand in Manchester with another key appointment PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 November 2016
The Manchester office of Ultimate Finance is building on the success in the North West region over the last year with a further senior appointment, having added six to the team so far this year.

Neil Lukins joins the SME funder as a regional director having spent 14 years working in the banking and commercial finance sector. For the last eight years he was with HSBC where he became regional business development manager within the global trade and receivables department.

Throughout his career he has specialised in invoice discounting and factoring, working with SMEs from start up to £6.5m turnover.

In addition to his strong banking background he has an excellent sales record as well as an in-depth understanding of credit and risk.

Speaking about the reasons for joining Ultimate Finance, Neil said, “Having worked in the banking sector for many years, I was attracted to Ultimate Finance because of the flexibility it can offer SMEs and the speed with which it is able to make decisions.

“A key driver for me is the fact it has a strong appetite to work with clients and tailor bespoke working capital solutions to help them to grow their businesses.”

Group sales director, Richard Waldman, is delighted to have made another high profile appointment. “It is encouraging that more and more senior people within the finance sector want to join us because they recognise the strengths of Ultimate Finance and the way we operate.

“During his time with HSBC, Neil built up an excellent reputation and trust among SMEs, as well as being well respected by introducers. He will therefore be an excellent addition to the team as we grow our presence in the North West from our new Manchester office.”
