BTG Corporate Solutions strengthens funding and recoveries team

Date Published: 27/07/2017

BTG Corporate Solutions, a division of Begbies Traynor, has appointed Charlotte Davison and Richard House to the growing team at its offices in Sheffield and Leeds which helps businesses across Yorkshire and further afield to source funding.

Charlotte joins as a funding and recoveries executive and will focus on funding and debt recovery activities.  She spent 14 years with The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), most recently working within the specialised business management team providing advice to customers in distress.  Her previous experience includes working as an insolvency case manger for Lombard.

Richard has taken on the role of recoveries and survey executive and will be responsible for collect out and recoveries work at BTG Corporate Solutions. His last role at Mazars was in a similar position within the firm’s receivables team; prior to that, he worked in a successful collect out team for 6 years located in Sheffield.

The pair join director Karl Hodson, who set up the new division a year ago, alongside Rhiannon Winfield, who was appointed as funding and recoveries administrator last September.   

“Since establishing this new division in March 2016, we have seen tremendous demand for our services, particularly from companies in the Yorkshire region seeking alternative business funding to the traditional high street banks, whether for working capital, expansion or capital equipment,” explains Karl Hodson.  

“With their experience in commercial finance, Charlotte and Richard will be welcome additions to the team, helping us to strengthen our offering to businesses here and across the UK as we match them with the most appropriate funders.  While there is now a greater choice of funding options, today’s lending markets are far more complex and we’re finding that clients need informed, expert advice to help identify the solution which is best for them. In addition we are able to assist businesses with credit control to ensure that their customers adhere to the agreed credit terms.”
