Finance 4 Business in Office Move & Business Restructure


Finance 4 Business, one of the UK’s leading specialist finance distributors have moved into the heart of the Birmingham City Centre’s Finance District.

Occupying the 9th floor of Bruntwood’s flagship development, Cornerblock, will enable the group to expand and meet its ambitious growth plans.

From the garage of Founder & Managing Director, Russell Martin, to these new offices is a testament of how much the company has evolved.

The move into Birmingham provides the opportunity to further increase its product offerings.

Earlier this year the company purchased a car finance brokerage, 4 Wheel Finance and will soon be launching a revolutionary asset based/Cashflow Finance division.

Joining the newly expanded group is David Totney, founder of the cash flow finance lending company Liquidity Limited that was purchased by Santander.

David will focus on providing Midlands enterprises with operating cash flow finance from a carefully selected group of funders.

In addition, Finance 4 Business has invested in Caliber Group which will be based within the new offices.

Caliber’s Managing Director is Leon Evans, formerly of Fine & Country.

Caliber specialises in sourcing land and planning opportunities for property developers and will link seamlessly into the Bridging & Development Finance part of the business, providing a one-stop shop for developers.

Prior to the move, Finance 4 Business formulated a new Senior Management structure, laying the foundations for growth.

Alongside Managing Director, Russell Martin are Ian Ferguson, Director (Finance & Risk) Melanie Johnson, Director (Operations) Paul Atkinson, Director (Mortgages) and Dave Fathers, Director (Sales).

In order to achieve the ambitious targets, the company is embarking on a recruitment drive within the core parts of the company.

With the aim of at least doubling these teams over the next 12 months, they are looking to recruit across a variety of levels.
