Finance 4 Business aiming high after new move

Finance 4 Business, one of the UK’s leading specialist finance distributors, has moved into the heart of Birmingham City Centre’s Finance District.

Occupying the 9th floor of Bruntwood’s flagship development, Cornerblock, will enable the group to expand and meet its ambitious growth plans.

From the garage of founder & managing director, Russell Martin, to these new offices is a testament of how much the company has evolved.

The move to Birmingham provides the opportunity for the company to further increase its product offerings.

Earlier this year the company purchased a car finance brokerage, 4 Wheel Finance, and will soon be launching an asset-based/cashflow finance division.

Joining the newly expanded group is David Totney, founder of the cash flow finance lending company Liquidity Limited, which was purchased by Santander.

David will focus on providing Midlands enterprises with operating cash flow finance from a carefully selected group of funders. 

In addition, Finance 4 Business has invested in Caliber Group which will be based within the new offices.

Caliber specialises in sourcing land and planning opportunities for property developers and will link seamlessly into the bridging & development finance part of the business, providing a one-stop shop for developers.

In order to achieve its ambitious targets, the company is embarking on a recruitment drive within the core parts of the company.

With the aim of at least doubling these teams over the next 12 months, they are looking to recruit across a variety of levels.

Russell said: “I am immensely proud of the evolution of Finance 4 Business. Birmingham is a fantastic city and will provide a superb location in which to grow the company further.

“The response to our arrival from clients and local professionals has been fantastic and I am more passionate and excited about the future than I ever have been.

“The people make this company and we are looking to hire high quality, enthusiastic individuals to join us on the next part of the journey.”

Director of Operations Melanie Johnson said: “Having joined Finance 4 Business 7 years ago, I have seen the company grow year on year.

“I am hugely excited about the move to the new offices and am certain the Grade A facilities will provide the perfect platform to elevate the company to the next level.

“The company is so fast moving, there is never a dull day and I can’t wait to see what the next 7 years brings.”
