ThinCats, the leading fintech lender to SMEs, has today announced the appointment of Tim House as an associate director within their growing Northern Business Development team.
Tim joins from Lloyds Banking Group, where he served as a relationship manager in charge of a portfolio of circa 140 SME clients, with turnovers of between £3m and £10m. Prior to this, Tim spent five years as an associate in Lloyds Corporate Banking team, supporting a range of companies with turnover between £25m-£100m and then latterly between £100m to £750m.
Tim House, associate director of business development, ThinCats, said:
“Having spent my whole career to date working for a traditional lender, I’ve seen first-hand how banks have retreated from the high street and, in doing so, have limited their appetite for SME cashflow lending, ignoring those ambitious SMEs that require finance to grow.
“ThinCats’ market-leading tech and wealth of lending experience, coupled with a genuine desire to help Britain’s small businesses, means they are uniquely well positioned to capitalise on the banks’ complacency, to the benefit of all SMEs.”
Mike Hackett, head of sales, ThinCats, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Tim into the ThinCats team. Strong community relations are at the heart of everything we do and Tim brings a wealth of knowledge and contacts from within the business communities of the north of England.”
