Responsible finance provider Enterprise Loans has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Adrian Twelvetrees as its new senior investment manager.
Adrian brings more than 30 years’ experience in the finance industry after working for a major high street bank, starting off as an office junior and working his way up to senior bank manager. He will work closely with the senior team and be in charge of managing the loan fund.
Adrian said: “I’m delighted to be joining the team and I’m excited about my new role as I think it will really utilise my skillset. I was attracted to Enterprise Loans as it looks to support start up businesses and budding entrepreneurs.
“The company has grown significantly over the past few years and I look forward to supporting the business advisors and the senior team to help shape the firm through its next phase and develop even stronger relationships with local businesses.”
The move comes as Neil Millington, fund manager at Enterprise Loans, announces his retirement after eight years at the company.
Quammar Zamman, CEO at Enterprise Loans, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Adrian to the team but of course we’re sad to say goodbye to Neil. He has been a fantastic asset to the company; under his expertise we have grown our loan funding pot to approximately £8million and successfully won contracts such as the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF).
“Adrian and Neil have had near identical career paths so we are extremely confident Adrian is going to be a great fit. He has a wealth of experience and I think his professional approach will offer a great addition to the senior management team.
“We’ve had a fantastic year so far but 2019 is set to be our best yet and we’re looking to reach even more businesses across the East and South East Midlands. Next year we are hoping to invest a total of £6million into the local economy which will support roughly 380 new businesses.”
Enterprise Loans is an ethical finance and business advice provider which is headquartered in Nottingham with further offices in Leicester and Lincoln and covers the entire East and South East Midlands region.
