MAF expands with appointment of senior director…

We have appointed seasoned director, Jon Bennett, to head up our sales operation in the East Midlands.

The appointment is part of our ongoing growth strategy following our acquisition by Begbies Traynor Group earlier this year.

Jon, who is based in Chesterfield, has extensive experience of managing trading businesses and structuring complex facilities, following a decade of banking experience in a similar role at Santander and three years as head of sales at alternative funder, Fresh Thinking Capital.

Overall, he has been working with SMEs and owner-managed businesses across Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire for over 25 years.

Our managing director, Dave Chapman, says: “We are delighted to welcome Jon to the team. This is a key appointment for MAF, with Jon already having many clients and professional contacts across the region. 

“Businesses are increasingly looking at their funding strategies for growth as we continue to emerge from the pandemic and we’re looking forward to extending our offer to support more businesses with a range of finance solutions across the region.”

Bennett adds: “I’m excited to be joining such a well-respected commercial financial brokerage in MAF, and very much looking forward to helping grow and develop businesses further by assisting SMEs navigate the increasingly complex UK debt landscape.”

Jon continues: “I am also relishing the opportunity to expand awareness of the MAF offering and its various specialist divisions to my network so we can work together to help SMEs and deliver further growth across the East Midlands region.”
