Broker Midlands Asset Finance (MAF) has appointed a relationship manager for the Yorkshire region, based in Swinton.
Kimberly Stephenson has joined from Lloyds Bank, where she held a series of roles in the SME and personal banking space since 2001.
She is the latest in a series of business development manager appointments for MAF since last year. Hires over the past 12 months include Stuart Buchan, formerly of Lombard, Craig Bennett, John Horne and Tom Gawne.
Stephenson has the distinction of being the first female relationship manager appointed by MAF.
She said: “I’ve known about MAF for many years and their reputation in the marketplace is second-to-none.
“It’s a real pleasure to start working for a company who have a can-do approach to their clients and who are forward-thinking in the way that they deal with them.
Sue Chapman, director, added: “I’m delighted that Kimberly has joined the team here.
“She has a massive amount of experience and I’m confident that, alongside our appetite for ‘yes’ ethos, she will enable us to continue helping businesses across the region.”
