Team Strengthens with the Appointment of Nick Whitaker

Following a long and succesful career working in high street banking, commercial banking and invoice finance, Nick Whitaker has joined the team at Avanti.

Nick orginally worked at Barclays Bank in various branches spanning a ten year period before moving to an Invoice Finance Sales role with Lloyds Commercial Finance in the early 1990's. Nick enjoyed 16 years at Lloyds working with a variety of business sectors and sizes. He then moved to a newly established Commercial FInance team at the Bank of Ireland in 2008, concentrating on funding buy-to-let solutions.

Due to adverse market conditions following the credit crunch, Nick reverted to an Invoice Finance role - he moved to HSBC Invoice Finance in 2010 and then to Bibby Financial Services, Yorkshire office where he worked for over six years.

Nick will concentrate on developing relationships with professionals to assist their clients in obtaining the most suitable finance prodcuts, as well as helping develop a new service for existing users to ensure they are maximising use of their facilities and have teh correct deal structure in place.

Commenting on his new role, Nick said "I am delighted to be working with the team at Avanti. Having worked on deals with the team in my previous role, I have been impressed with their professional, independent approach. I am looking forward to providing independent advice across a number of Asset Based Lending providers and continuing to work with accountants and professional advisors in the area.
