These are turbulent times – especially for business. The rapid changes we’ve seen during the current pandemic have required them to move quickly; to adapt to the demands of different trading conditions, to innovate to meet the changing needs of customers, or to transform and seize alternative opportunities.
What businesses of every size need now more than ever is financial flexibility, without the need for large reserves of cash – and asset finance is built around this understanding. We facilitate businesses to invest in assets while preserving cash flow.
We are determined to be able to continue to offer the same level of expertise and support and the breadth of finance options which have made us a trusted choice for businesses for decades. So, to meet the rising need for our services we have taken the step of increasing our headcount by 50% during lockdown – with four new members of staff comprising an almost complete full planned sales team, allowing us to make a positive difference for even more businesses.
At the helm of the new team is Anton Scott, Head of Sales, who joined us on April 14 bringing a wealth of experience with him, having worked in the asset finance industry since 1991.
Alongside him are two new business development managers who will foster even closer working with Dawsongroup Finance’s sister companies across Dawsongroup PLC; these companies supply the UK with a range of assets, including vans, trucks, trailers, ambulances, forklifts and temporary storage units.
Andrew Kenny, who joined Dawsongroup Finance on May 1, will work with Dawsongroup Truck and Trailer. Based in Sheffield, Andrew is well located to efficiently represent Dawsongroup Finance in the North of England and Scotland.
His counterpart is Chelmsford-based David Glasson, who is supporting the southern region of Dawsongroup Truck and Trailer, offering finance solutions to customers as well as the rental services that Dawsongroup are known for.
Finally, Gulshan Khan, a third Business Development Manager, joined us on May 4th. She will bring his extensive asset finance experience to bear with Dawsongroup Material Handling, Dawsongroup Sweepers and Dawsongroup Temperature Control Solutions, helping them find new ways to meet their customers’ needs.
While these new starters had to forego the usual onboarding process and are, like the rest of the team, working remotely, they are already establishing themselves and developing relationships with businesses up and down the country. All four have a crucial role to play in growing Dawsongroup Finance, and helping to ensure that we can provide even more businesses with the finance solutions they need, when they need them, as they face the challenges of these unique times.
