Cornwall-based Ignition, a provider of vehicle and asset finance for SMEs, has made two senior hires for its brokerage and underwriting teams.

Andy Morris has joined as a senior underwriter, bringing two decades in financial services to the role. He was most recently senior underwriter at Paragon Bank Business Finance, where he joined in 2015.

Prior to that, he held positions within Deutsche Leasing, BNP Paribas, Lombard and Five Arrows. He holds experience in finance for a variety of sectors including agriculture, construction, personal wealth, marine and aviation.

Samantha Keen and Katie Geal have also been appointed, respectively, financial controller and administrator.

I’m delighted to welcome Andy, Alan and Katie to Ignition, to help further strengthen the team and build on this success.”
