Ashley Finance has extended a warm welcome to our new Regional Sales Director for Yorkshire, Lisa Cooper. Lisa started her Invoice Finance career back in 1987 with Alex Lawrie, gaining a good grounding with a variety of roles before settling into sales in the early 90s.

Commercial Finance experience continued for Lisa, with Five Arrows covering the Yorkshire areas in a sales role before a family business opportunity took her away from the industry for 7 years.

Lisa’s return to Invoice Finance Sales was with Catalyst where she remained for 2 years before redundancy presented her with the opportunity to look for a new challenge.

Speaking about her appointment, Lisa expressed her enthusiasm, ‘Joining Ashley was an easy decision to make as their values echo my passion for helping small businesses – I actually think that Factoring, if used correctly, is the best thing since sliced bread as in essence it just helps a business to grow.’

She continues ‘I’m really keen to promote the Ashley brand across Yorkshire, Humber and North Lincolnshire where I have a good network of contacts built up over my 20 years plus in the industry.  I am very customer centric and this fits perfectly with the Ashley ethos of providing personal support to customers without the pre-judging, for me it’s exciting times ahead!’

Lisa’s appointment comes at a time when Ashley Finance looks to expand their sales presence in key regions – an important move in helping provide customers with quicker response times, enabling them to access the right funding when needed.

Ashley’s Senior Regional Director, Rob Mercer commenting on the new addition to the team said, ‘I am delighted to welcome Lisa to the Ashley team. She brings a wealth of experience to the role and I, personally, am really looking forward to working with her to expand our presence in such a vital area. It’s a great time for Lisa to be joining us and just shows how committed we are to offering our customers the best service possible.’

Lisa is already getting out and about so if you would like to find out more about her love for her two border terriers, how she likes to ski and of course the great funding products and service Ashley can offer, then contact her today!
