Investec Asset Finance plc enhances broker service with new appointment

David Lavin joins from leasing specialist 1pm plc to further develop IAF’s broker outreach  

Investec Asset Finance plc (“IAF”) today announced the appointment of David Lavin to its broker introduced sales team. David’s appointment is in part a response to feedback from our annual survey, which highlighted the appetite for an increased presence in Northern England, as well as the recent surge in broker sign-ups in the area. As such, David will be responsible for supporting and building broker relationships across the region.

Stuart Hughes, Head of Broker Sales at IAF, said: 

“In order to ensure that we consistently provide our brokers with excellent service – responding not only to their specific needs but also pressures – it is vital that we employ people with in-depth experience of the market.”

David joins as broker manager bringing a wealth of experience to the role. He was most recently a broker manager with leasing specialist 1pm plc where he managed a team of 80 brokers covering Northern England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Prior to this, he was a direct sales manager at Academy Leasing where was instrumental in setting up the firm’s asset and vehicle leasing telesales division. 

Hughes added: “David has worked in the asset finance business for over four years and, in that time, has accrued a wealth of experience dealing with large broker portfolios and the set-up of new operational divisions within a company. I am confident that he will be a great addition to our team in the North. More importantly, his appointment demonstrates our commitment to both the broker community and those clients looking to access specialist finance solutions.”
