ThinCats expands Birmingham presence with new office and heavyweight hires


Following a record month of loans totalling £14.7m, ThinCats, the alternative finance specialist, has opened an office in Birmingham as it looks to strategically expand across the Midlands. 

The office, located on Colmore Row, Birmingham, will be the West Midlands base for ThinCats, which will retain its operational headquarters in Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire. 

The office opening is part of an ambitious plan to expand ThinCats in Birmingham, bringing the business closer to its finance partners in the city and helping to cement its position at the forefront of alternative finance provision across the region. 

Damon Walford, CDO at ThinCats, is excited to return to the city and business community he knows so well after working there for two decades. 

Damon said:

"We are working closely with numerous Birmingham based advisers and organisations committed to funding SMEs. The city is undergoing unprecedented levels of inward investment - we want to be on the frontline of this revolution by supporting SMEs in their growth plans." 

ThinCats will be revealing its full Birmingham team of funding big-hitters over the next few months. 

Damon added: 

"We're incredibly excited about our expansion into Birmingham. We're building a vastly experienced team of funding experts and look forward to working with the business community in the city as it enters a new era."
