Investec Asset Finance (IAF) has appointed David Lavin as its broker manager and he will be tasked with boosting sales in Northern England.

Lavin’s appointment is in part a response to feedback from IAF’s annual survey, which highlighted the appetite for an increased presence in Northern England, as well as the recent surge in broker sign-ups in the area.

Lavin will be responsible for supporting and building broker relationships across the region.

Stuart Hughes, IAF head of broker sales, said: “In order to ensure that we consistently provide our brokers with excellent service – responding not only to their specific needs but also pressures – it is vital that we employ people with in-depth experience of the market.”

Lavin was most recently a broker manager with leasing specialist 1pm plc where he managed a team of 80 brokers covering Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Prior to this, he was a direct sales manager at Academy Leasing where he helped set up the firm’s asset and vehicle leasing telesales division.

Hughes said: “David has worked in the asset finance business for over four years and, in that time, has accrued a wealth of experience dealing with large broker portfolios and the set-up of new operational divisions within a company.

“I am confident that he will be a great addition to our team in the North. More importantly, his appointment demonstrates our commitment to both the broker community and those clients looking to access specialist finance solutions.”
