In direct response to the increase in business volumes and the record number of brokers now working in partnership with Praetura Asset Finance, the company’s business development team is expanding with the appointment of Harry Crossley.

Harry brings with him over eight years’ experience working in the asset finance industry, starting that journey through the Aspire Programme at Close Brothers Asset Finance and having most recently worked at Scania Financial Services.

In his new role at Praetura Asset Finance, Harry will be working alongside Regional Sales Director for the North, Dan Heald, along with other members of the business development team and will be concentrating on building relationships and working in partnership with brokers and their SME clients across South Yorkshire and the North East of England.

When asked ‘why Praetura?’, Harry told us: “My drive for always striving to generate positive customer outcomes is one of the key reasons why I joined the Praetura Group. Praetura has an embedded culture of putting the customer first and working towards achieving the best outcome possible. I am excited to be part of the Praetura family and am looking forward to getting stuck in”.

Regional Sales Director for the North, Dan Heald, commented: “I am delighted with the way the business is visibly going from strength to strength, both in terms of the record numbers of brokers working with Praetura Asset Finance and the number of SMEs our funding is assisting throughout the country.

“Expanding our team with the arrival of Harry is another indication of our ambitions to keep moving forwards and keep increasing the number of businesses benefitting from our ‘more than money’ approach to funding”.
