Heading up the team is Michelle Maguire who joins the branded lender and packager from First National Consumer Finance where she enjoyed considerable success in her role as team leader. In her new post, Michelle will be responsible for liaison with Elephant Loans’ panel of 19 lenders and will manage the operation of the company’s new Oldham office. Joining Michelle are Alex Totty, who has a strong track record in business to business sales, and Neil Simmons, who joins the company from NTL where he was the most successful regional manager in 2003.
Says Ms Maguire, “We’ve all come on board at a time of a substantial growth for the business and at a key stage in the company’s evolution. As the first region specific team for Elephant Loans we’re very excited about the opportunities for developing the business in the north west and are confident of having a significant impact on the company’s sales.”
Also new to Elephant Loans is Isobelle Farrell, formerly of Southern Pacific Personal Loans (SPPL), who has been recruited to lead the broker underwriting department from the company’s London office.
