Ultimate Finance has appointed Samantha Wilson as regional director as it continues its Manchester office expansion.

Wilson joined Ultimate Finance after almost 30 years in commercial lending, and has previously worked at the Royal Bank of Scotland, Davenham Group, and Regency Factors.

In her previous roles, Wilson worked across asset-based lending disciplines such as trade, invoice, and asset finance, and has knowledge of structuring deals.

Wilson said: “I am looking forward to working closely with SMEs to understand the strategic goals of their business, assisting them to overcome their cashflow challenges and ensuring that long lasting relationships are retained through support not only with the client but also with the introducer.”

Richard Waldman, group sales director, said: “Having spent many years in the sector, Sam is extremely well known and highly respected within the broker community.

“They know that her knowledge and experience is second to none and will be confident that if anyone can find a solution to a client’s cashflow problems, it will be Sam.”
