Mistral Asset Finance Strengthens Its Team
Mistral Asset Finance was launched in 2010 to provide a range of tailored financial packages specifically aimed at the UK bus and coach market. Being independent of the major lending institutions has allowed it to develop an attractive brokerage offering using many of the most well known names on the high street, such as Lombard and HSBC. Additionally it has access to its own funding streams allowing it to provide an immediate solution to many operators who need a quick decision when they are in the market for a new vehicle.
To further support its on going development, Mistral Asset Finance is pleased to confirm the appointment of two new Regional Sales Managers, Paul Ricci and Ian Earp. Paul joins Mistral having worked extensively in the asset finance market primarily in the brokerage sector, and will take responsibility for developing MAFL’s presence primarily in the west of England and Wales. Ian again has extensive experience in the lending market, and will take responsibility for developing MAFL’s support to Plaxton and ADL’s retail sales team. Ian will be based at Plaxton’s Anston site and will work closely with the coach and bus sales teams to assist them in finding appropriate funding packages for their customers. Paul and Ian join MAFL’s existing sales team of William Devine (Regional Sales Manager Scotland), Guy Wadsworth, Scott Burke and Donna Street.
Paul can be reached on 07800 999 551 or email@example.com and Ian can be contacted via his mobile 07800 999 552 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Commenting on the appointments, MAF’s COO, Guy Wadsworth, said; “Mistral’s Asset Finance business has enjoyed considerable success since its launch and the time is now right to strengthen our field based team. With these two appointments, both experienced industry professionals, we will be able to offer prospective customers an even better level of service and react quickly to their asset finance requirements.”
Mistral Asset Finance is based in the heart of Manchester, and works closely with customers all over the country, assisting them in finding the most appropriate funding for vehicle purchases, both on bus and coach products. Additionally it has also assisted a number of clients in raising funding via the re-finance of existing assets and provided advice on raising funds for completing acquisitions and major developments.
