Trade Finance Partners (TFP) has hired David Howes as its new business development manager, commodities.

Howes joins following a twenty-year career at Stemcor where he became a senior trader.

“We see steel and its associated products as a key area of development and view David as a key hire,” says TFP commercial director William Tebbit.

“His comprehensive understanding and long experience of the steel trade will greatly benefit TFP in its drive to expand its markets and improve and develop the financial products we offer to business.”

Commenting on his new role, Howes says: “I aim to utilise my long experience in the steel space to bring Trade Finance Partners new clients from the industry, which is increasingly in need of new financing packages.”
