We've boosted our team with two high-calibre recruits
We are proud to announce that that we have appointed two industry specialists to enhance our offering and drive business growth for the company. Reporting into David Forbes, Director of Sales, are Relationship Directors Ian Homer and Philip Stead.
Ian Homer joins Close Brothers Technology Services from Lombard, where he worked with both SMEs and Corporates across a wide range of sectors, providing asset finance solutions. Prior to that he worked in Corporate Banking for RBS and will be responsible for the Midlands area along with a number of key accounts.
Philip Stead will be responsible for developing new client relationships across the North West region, working with businesses – including the wider Close Brothers organisation - to provide tailored technology solutions. Philip has worked in banking and finance for over 30 years with half of that time spent in providing technology financing solutions. He has managed national sales teams, vendor finance programs and worked across the technology industry for Siemens, Marconi, Sun Microsystems, EMC and most recently Hitachi Data Systems.
David Forbes, Director of Sales, Close Brothers Technology Services, commented: “The Relationship Directors will be playing a key part in further establishing our team in the market, and bring with them many years of combined relevant experience, and are further evidence of the high calibre team we are continuing to create at Close Brothers Technology Services. By adding additional expertise to our business, we aim to be the go-to provider for businesses looking to reduce their IT expenditure, boost efficiency, and improve control to deliver more sustainable solutions.”
