Reward Finance Group Recruits New Commercial Director as Record Growth Continues PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 10 October 2017
Leeds and Manchester-based alternative finance provider, Reward Finance Group, has appointed Gemma Wright as commercial director with responsibility to prepare the business for its next stage of development. 

Gemma is a well-known name in the financial services sector having spent more than 17 years with RBS where she became director of Invoice Finance with responsibility for leading a number of sales teams across the North.

Gemma joins Reward Finance Group at an exciting time for the company having celebrated its fifth successive year of growth, with increased income for the year end 14 per cent up on the previous year and the loan book growing by 25 percent.

In September it also received a £40m investment from Foresight Group, which has doubled the amount of funds available for the company to lend to SMEs.

Speaking about her new role, Gemma said, “I am delighted to be joining Reward at such an exciting time in their growth and looking forward to working with the existing directors to drive the business in the latest stage of its development. Reward is making waves in the alternative business finance market through its fast, flexible and innovative solutions for the SME market and I am really pleased to be part of such a successful and forward-thinking business.”

Commenting on the new appointment, Nick Smith, Reward’s group sales and marketing director, said: “To have attracted someone with the experience and skills of Gemma to the team demonstrates the growing reputation of Reward Finance Group within the marketplace.

“We are an extremely ambitious company which has a ‘can do’ attitude, makes quick decisions and provides a fast turnaround of funding. This approach is welcomed by SMEs, especially as traditional funding is still proving difficult to obtain. This has been reflected in our impressive growth and increased revenues over the last five years.

“We are building an excellent team at Reward and, having appointed someone of Gemma’s calibre, we are looking forward to building on our success.”
