Companies in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire can now gain access to high level, bespoke commercial advice following our latest appointment.
Chris Bailey has been unveiled as our Senior Commercial Manager. A familiar face to many company executives across Staffordshire and Cheshire, Chris joins us from Lloyds Bank, where he served for 30 years, most recently as a Commercial Relationship Director.
The appointment strengthens our position as a leader in the commercial finance market, bringing a level of senior advice only available from the big city financial services companies.
It caps a year of growth which has more than doubled our teamfrom five to 11 and seen us move to modern, purpose-built office premises at Evolution, Lymedale Business Park.
Managing Director Dean Birks said: “SME companies rarely have easy access to personally delivered, effective relationship management in 2019 and, according to our customers, the service is a major loss.
Signature has moved forward in 2019, generating more wealth for our clients and attracting new customers both on the personal finance and commercial sides of our business and Chris’ appointment represents a further leap forward.
Chris is recognised in the business arena for his expertise and strategic advice which have helped numerous companies to thrive across our region.
He will now offer commercial funding and support services for Signature of a kind that are generally only available from the bigger finance houses in the major cities.”
Chris, 48, who lives locally in Newcastle-under-Lyme, said: “Signature has a dynamic team and I jumped at the opportunity to come on board. My new role allows me to use the skills I developed whilst at Lloyds to help many local businesses to thrive now giving them access to the whole of the market, and independent financial advice.”
Signature traded for several years from the Barracks, close to Newcastle town centre, but our recent move to purpose-built offices has allowed us to expand our offer and has sparked further growth.
The new office complex is open plan and offers much improved space in which to welcome you our valued customers.
