Henry Howard Finance (HHF) has appointed two account managers to its asset finance division.

Mark Mountford and Lynne Plaister joined HHF in September, following an 80% growth in lending across the team over the last 12 months, said the lessor.

Mountford joins from Royal Bank of Scotland where he was employed as a relationship director for corporate clients across South Wales. Plaister’s career has spanned various sales and management roles in the car rental industry, including positions at Europcar and United Rental Group.

Matt Jones, head of HH Asset Finance, said: “We’re delighted to welcome both Lynne and Mark to our fast growing team.

“The appointments will further strengthen our position as the leading independent business finance provider in Wales and South-West England, ensuring we provide industry-leading service to our growing portfolio of clients.”

Henry Howard Finance recently qualified for the 2016 Wales Fast Growth 50 list, an awards body recognising growth within the Welsh business sector.
