Our client a long established lease brokerage with a plethora of funders offering excellent rates are seeking a very largely office based Sales Manager Hard Assets to lead a business unit focussed on the financing of construction and agricultural assets typically dealer or manufacturer introduced but for deal sizes typically £150,000 – £200,000 and higher.
Our client finances both new and used assets and makes a margin over cost of funds of 6% of asset value for used assets & 2% for new. Typically 70% of business written today is on used assets and 30% new but due to recent new programme wins it is anticipated that gradually the mix will become more towards 50 / 50.
Your role is to personally deliver volumes and lead the business unit of administration and sales staff to its next level of success.
You will inherit and develop existing relationships but will personally take the lead on new business generation. It is expected the role will be 70% new business and 30% account management & relationship development.
