Falcon Group has appointed Scott Bradley as business development manager of UK North.

Bradley will work to grow Falcon’s client base in the north of the country, providing financing to mid-market companies experiencing difficulties accessing traditional bank funding. He will also focus on those involved in exports.

Bradley, who brings 30 years of experience from across the banking and trade finance industries, joins from Bibby Financial Services. Prior to that, he worked in similar roles for GE Capital, Crédit Agricole and Five Arrows Commercial Finance.

“The north of the UK is home to some of the country’s most innovative and exciting businesses – yet funding is scarce,” says Bradley.

“Falcon can certainly plug this gap and help these companies grow both domestically and internationally.”
