James Broadhead, managing director of Close Brothers Motor Finance, has been included in this year’s Motor Finance Power 50, a poll that seeks to recognise the “most powerful and influential people in the UK motor finance industry”.

The Power 50, which is now in its third year, comprises of high profile figures including George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney.

Commenting on the achievement, James Broadhead said: “I’m very proud to feature in the prestigious Motor Finance Power 50 which is widely recognised in our industry. It’s a real honour to be voted for by my peers and I would like to thank everyone who voted and contributed.

“We’ve had a very busy and successful year at Close Brothers Motor Finance. The team and myself have been working tirelessly over the last 12 months to improve and build upon the service we provide to both our dealer partners and our customers.

“We have a growing network of dealer partners across the UK and are committed to helping them achieve their business objectives. We will continue to strive to find ways to add value to their businesses providing advice and guidance on how they can develop their overall business strategy along with helping them through the changing regulatory landscape.”
