Propel strengthens its Bus and Coach Specialist team
Independent and technology driven SME lender Propel has appointed Scott Burke as Relationship Director, covering the UK Northern region. Having recently started his new role, Scott joins Propel as part of their dedicated Bus and Coach Specialist team – reporting directly to the Head of Product and Specialisms, Matt Jones, and joining Chris Rich who covers the UK Southern region. Scott’s responsibilities are dedicated to providing market leading finance propositions to UK Bus and Coach operators and dealers, creating new partnerships and ensuring that Propel is a trusted go-to funder across the sector.
Scott holds almost 15 years’ experience of working directly with UK Bus and Coach operators, supporting their ongoing fleet and refinance requirements. His previous roles include working as a National Sales Manager at Praetura Direct Finance and Mistral Asset Finance, where he secured many long-standing relationships and extensive knowledge of how to support the specific needs of every customer in the bus and coach sector.
Scott said: “I’m thrilled to have joined Propel Finance, particularly at such an exciting time in their journey. From the outset, I was impressed by their aspirations to build a strong presence within the Bus and Coach sector through partnerships with the UK operators and dealer network. Considering the current challenging financial environment, Propel stood out to me in terms of their commitment and desire to step forward and show support during this time – where many customers may assume that funding is hard to come by.”
Commenting on this appointment, Matt Jones, Head of Product and Specialisms for Propel said: “Scott’s appointment is a real boost for us and is the latest in a string of key appointments to strengthen our growing business. Securing Scott in this key role is an important step in our long-term plans and I’m excited that he has joined us.
