Bristol based Optimum Finance bolsters presence in the Midlands with new hire

Optimum Finance Ewan-Clarke

Optimum Finance has appointed Ewan Clarke as Regional Director for the Midlands. Ewan joins the company with a background in both insolvency and corporate finance. 

The Midlands is a hot spot for production being the UK’s most active advanced engineering and manufacturing hub. Businesses in the region support 14 per cent of the country’s entire advanced engineering workforce with companies focusing on transport technology, energy storage, and food tech. Both long standing businesses and innovative start-ups will be able to benefit from the additional cash flow unlocked from their B2B invoices under a factoring facility. 

Ewan said: “The Midlands is filled with companies that operate across a diverse range of sectors, from manufacturing and engineering to energy and logistics. Factoring and invoice discounting is perfect for supply chain firms that work in all disciplines of these industries. 

“Optimum really care about delivering the best result to both their clients and introducers, and I am thrilled to be part of the team and looking forward to supporting businesses across all sectors in the Midlands.” 

Chief Commercial Officer Lynn-Marie Jameson said “Our current Midlands based clients form supply chains to many well-known brands such as Jaguar, Land Rover and Lotus. We have always supported SMEs in the region, and with Ewan onboard, we are excited to support many, many more.”
