Vantage Finance, one of the UK’s leading master brokers, has announced the creation of a dedicated business development team, to help grow its broker network across the UK.

Vantage has appointed two Business Development Managers: Sashi Butcher and Jules Dias, who will work alongside the company’s Head of Sales, Tim Bennett, as part of a new dedicated team. The pair will be responsible for generating and managing fresh business leads and developing Vantage’s growing network of brokers and financial advisers.

Sashi brings a wealth of expertise to her role, with over 30 years’ experience working across retail and corporate banking with banks such as Barclays, HSBC and Allied Irish Bank. Jules also joins the team following a number of business development roles, most recently at Loan Engine, an established loan broker based in Watford.

Sashi commented on her new role:
“I’ve been involved in a number of roles managing client relationships and portfolios at big banks, but the packaging industry has a completely different attitude towards finance. The flexibility to choose from different lenders to source finance for each individual means I can offer a more tailored, personal service to clients. It’s a whole different way of doing business, and I’m really enjoying being involved in the entire process, from the point of introduction to completion.”

Jules also commented:
“The team at Vantage has a great level of knowledge in dealing with complex cases, and I’m thoroughly excited to be involved in the development of a business whose reputation speaks for itself.”

Lucy Hodge, Managing Director of Vantage Finance, said:
“We are receiving an increasing number of enquiries from brokers across the UK and our new business development team has been put in place to take full advantage of incoming opportunities and help Vantage continue to grow.

“Sashi and Jules are highly experienced in analysing the market and securing new leads, and both have demonstrated a proactive attitude within their first few weeks. We look forward to the value they will no-doubt bring to our team.”
