Close Brothers Invoice Finance, part of Close Brothers Plc, has joined up its north and south businesses to form a unified UK structure, leading to a number of new leadership roles.
Ian Steward, previously managing director of Close Brothers Invoice Finance North, has been appointed managing director of Close Brothers Invoice Finance UK. Ian brings to the role a wealth of experience both as a regional managing director and as a board director.
Fiona Parkinson and George May become commercial directors for the north and south respectively.

“The vast experience of our restructured leadership team of Ian, Fiona, George, Paul and Andy is a great foundation from which to continue to build our business.”
