Praetura Asset Finance has brought two new recruits into its operational team to enable the company to manage its rapid growth.

Anne McKee joins the firm as operations supervisor from a competitor and has 13 years experience in the financial sector.

A major part of her remit will be to develop the company’s processes and structures to prepare it for further growth.

Day-to-day she will be responsible for ensuring that finance agreements are processed correctly, including compilation of all documentation requested by the underwriting team.

Anne said: “Praetura has been in business for just a year and has already become a major player, so this is a very exciting opportunity for me to join a dynamic company and play a significant role in implementing best practice systems.

“The company’s rapid success in the marketplace is thanks to the expertise of its team and it’s great to be part of a team that is driven, pragmatic and service-oriented.”

Carol Reilly has also been appointed to a key role on the operations team as operations administrator. Having joined the company in August, Carol was promoted just four months later to enhance the firm’s resources in pre-underwriting finance proposals before they are processed for credit appraisals.

Carol brings 14 years’ experience to Praetura, on both the finance house and brokerage side of the sector, having previously worked in similar roles.

Comments Mike Hartley, managing director at Praetura Asset Finance: “We believe in offering flexibility at every stage, as well as adopting a more holistic approach to valuing our clients than most lenders.

“As a result we have grown very rapidly in a short space of time and these new appointments will ensure that we continue to manage that growth effectively, enabling us to process proposals quickly and efficiently so that our clients can access the funds they need, when they need them.”
