SIA Group strengthens its senior team with the appointment of Paul Beveridge
SIA Group has looked to further strengthen its leadership team with the appointment of asset-based lending industry veteran Paul Beveridge as a non-executive, underpinning the Group’s ambitious plans for growth.
Paul brings more than three decades of experience to the role, latterly as managing director of PNC Business Credit in the UK. Under Paul’s leadership, PNC Business Credit has grown from a new start-up in 2006 to one of the UK’s leading asset-based lending businesses with more than £2bn of commitments under management.
SIA Group was founded as an asset valuation and auction house in the early 1990s. The company has grown exponentially from an office in Brighton to seven regional offices with the head office located near St Paul’s, London and is regarded as one of the pre-eminent asset valuation and auction specialists in the UK.
Commenting on his new role, Paul Beveridge said, “I am delighted to be joining the business at this exciting stage in its development. SIA Group has achieved exponential growth and has established a leading position in the market. We are embarking on a three-year strategic plan that will create a solid platform for the Group to exploit opportunities for continued growth in both current and new markets. We have already identified key areas for expansion, from reach to recruitment and from new products to perspectives on what’s next for our core markets as we prepare for the next quantum leap.”
Paul Craig, managing director of SIA Group, said, “I am delighted that Paul Beveridge is joining SIA Group. Paul brings a wealth of experience to the business and a fresh strategic perspective, which will be invaluable as the company embarks on this new chapter of dynamic growth. His knowledge and expertise will be key as we develop our platform across key markets and explore new areas, broadening our geographic footprint, widening our service proposition and enhancing our market offering. The newly created role reflects our ambitious growth plans and underpins our commitment to the markets we serve.”
