Small business lender Scottish Pacific has reinforced its commitment to one state through staff recruitment and the launch of a new office.
Seven new staff have joined Scottish Pacific's South Australian team, while the lender has also established a larger office in Adelaide in a bid to better service its clients and grow the business.
“To provide improved funding options for SMEs in South Australia, we have added to our local team,” Scottish Pacific CEO Peter Langham said this week.
“This gives businesses in the state better access to flexible facilities, unsecured to real estate, and with a local team in place for fast funding decisions.”
General manager of the South Australian office, Gary Green, said the increased staff numbers and new office reinforces the group’s commitment to the South Australian market and SME community.
“Our local business development manager Greg Hardiman has forged excellent bonds with South Australian SMEs and we look forward to our seven new team members working closely with clients to help grow their businesses,” Mr Green said.
“Our clients in South Australia range from family quarrying companies to exporting paint manufacturers, from start-ups to iconic SA companies, and we are delighted to be able to offer them a strong local team to help them reach their business aspirations.”
