AN Ellesmere Port-based asset finance provider has appointed a new managing director to deliver its ambitious growth plans for 2021 and beyond.

Jane Tabiner, who has worked at Solutions Asset Finance for more than a decade, initially joined the firm on a short-term basis before working her way up to operations director in 2019.

Jane has now been promoted to managing director, marking a new chapter for the company, with the new MD set to spearhead the company’s growth plans as it looks to increase its market share in 2021 and beyond.

Jane’s appointment will also see former managing director, Steve Bowers, take on the role of CEO - an entirely new role within the firm.

SAF provides tailored, flexible financial solutions for suppliers working in both the public and private sector with extensive experience in facilitating finance solutions for the NHS.

The company also provides sales support to blue chip suppliers of equipment and energy solutions, using its solutions to help them drive stronger revenues.

Jane said of her promotion: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have been appointed as SAF’s new managing director. We have positive and progressive plans in place for the coming few years and I’m excited to be leading the charge and seeing where our company can go next.

“When you have worked with a firm for 10 years, there aren’t many elements of the business you haven’t been exposed to, so I’m looking forward to bringing those strands together in my new role. I‘m excited to continue to work alongside SAF’s fantastic team and suppliers to bring our plans to fruition.”

Steve Bowers, CEO, added: “This latest appointment signals the start of a new era for SAF. We’re really proud of the journey the business has been on over the past 15 years.

"With Jane leading us, I have no doubt we will continue to grow and flourish as we provide unique funding solutions to our suppliers.”

SAF has funded more than £500m of sales for the public sector since its inception in 2006 and helps NHS Trusts and private companies make their projects a reality through bespoke financial solutions.
