Bexhill UK, the premium finance provider, has launched a new leasing service to put leasing arrangements in place for brokers or their clients – usually for commercial investments such as new IT systems, motor fleets or other large scale commercial equipment.
Bexhill has appointed Phil Crockatt as a Business Development Director to head up the leasing division. Phil Crockatt is a leasing specialist with 20 years’ experience of advising firms on their leasing arrangements. He joins Orchard from Accolaide Finance where he was sales manager, managing and growing large, multi-billion-pound turnover manufacturer/vendor accounts – improving their UK leasing operations through detailed reporting and training, generating new business, and developing and maintaining client relationships.
Phil reports into Chris Meyer, Director, Bexhill UK. Chris comments: “Because we are innovative, nimble and financially robust, we can move fast to develop new financial products and services. We listen to our broker clients and we’re always looking ahead to new ways of adding value. We’re delighted to add this further string to our bow and to welcome Phil Crockatt to the team. Brokers can now conveniently keep their premium finance and leasing finance arrangements all in one place and can also offer our leasing services to their commercial clients.”
Part of Orchard Funding Group PLC, a global financial services group which has been operating within the premium funding market for 13 years, Bexhill UK supports hundreds of insurance brokers across the UK. Its original unique funding model provides the finance, if required, and the supporting technology to enable brokers to run their own premium finance company without any need for complex training or additional overheads, whilst ensuring they remain in total control of the relationship with their clients.
