KeyFleet has announced its expansion into the commercial finance sector with the launch of KeyFinance, offering finance solutions to businesses across the North West.
Headed by commercial finance specialist, Liam Mulligan, the new arm of the business has already secured funding lines with over twenty of the UK’s leading banks and funding houses to give SME’s access to the best rates and to enable KeyFinance to be flexible in terms of type of funding, asset type and credit status.
KeyFinance will be able to access funding for growing and progressive businesses even when the main banks and traditional lenders have been unable to agree a deal.
Marking ten years in business, the broader offering has been a long-term vision of KeyFleet founder and MD, Marc Mcloughlin.
The launch follows a chance meeting between Mulligan and Mcloughlin at a BNI networking group, where the pair decided to join forces and leverage their collective expertise and contacts to help local businesses to access funds they need to grow.
Prior to joining the firm, Mulligan worked in commercial finance for 14 years and arranged deals in almost every sector, including: sport, medical, agricultural and leisure and hospitality.
With a background in law and accountancy, Mulligan's experience and proven track record will enable KeyFinance to offer a supportive service unlocking funds for a wide range of businesses.
Mcloughlin said: “We generate a lot of business through BNI referrals and existing relationships, so to meet Liam at one of meetings was a great stroke of luck.
“He shares the KeyFleet ethos of offering a friendly and transparent service helping local businesses to access deals that are right for them. Once funds are released they often generate work for other BNI members, so it’s a great way of holistically supporting business growth in the region.
“Liam has the drive and expertise to lead KeyFinance and our existing customers are very receptive to the fact that we can now help them in a broader way.”
