Leeds-based Fresh Thinking Capital has made ten new hires during the last year as it continues to make the most of opportunities in the current business climate.

The new hires in the last year, including regional sales directors and within its Operations team, covering credit and risk and portfolio management.

At present, Fresh Thinking Capitals’ loan book stands at £25m and it is on course to achieve £100m in the next three years.

Founded by Mel Hird and Andrew Walls in 2018, the company supports SMEs by offering  tailored business loans from £100k to £2m. Unlike banks and other lenders, it is able to act within tight timescales, with terms issued within 24 hours after a first meeting.

Mel said: “We are growing quickly because we understand the SME market needs tailored advice and the right business funding so it can take advantage of opportunities as they arise, often within fast-moving timeframes. Our team of expert regional sales directors based in cities around the UK means we are able to support SMEs across the country.

“We’re always looking to recruit exceptional people that have the attitude, drive and ambition to be involved in a business where people and talent are very much at the core of what we do.”

The announcement coincides with the finance company unveiling a brand refresh encompassing a new logo and website. The refreshed brand serves to reflect the positivity and dynamism of the business as it continues to grow.
