Specialist financier Falcon Group appoints Lee Casey to drive the provision of competitive and flexible funding to underserved businesses across central England.
Falcon Group has appointed Lee Casey as Business Development Manager for UK Midlands. Casey’s appointment will strengthen Falcon’s expertise and, in turn, enable it to better service the funding requirements of businesses across the region.
Casey joins from HSBC, where he served as a Business Relationship Manager for Commercial Banking. His key responsibilities were business origination and deal structuring, as well as managing and developing relationships with international companies in the £10 to £100m group turnover range. Prior to this, he held a variety of roles within HSBC and at RBS and Natwest – amassing an impressive 22 years’ experience in commercial banking.
“Trade finance is an increasingly competitive market,” says Casey. “Falcon is underpinned by its bespoke innovative funding solutions and unparalleled market knowledge – which provides a distinctive edge in this industry. I am very much looking to deliver that offering to those companies in need of it across the Midlands region.”
“Lee is joining at a time when non-bank finance solutions are experiencing strong traction among UK businesses,” adds Emma Clark, Falcon’s Head of Business Development, UK and Europe. “With his wealth of industry knowledge, networks and experience, I believe he will be a tremendous asset to our UK team.”
“This is an exciting time for us as we see more and more UK businesses looking to expand and grow,” says Will Nagle, CEO of Falcon Group. “In today’s economy, not only do businesses need agile and innovative solutions – but also strong global networks, as well as a funding partner who understands the unique pressures businesses face. Falcon can provide all of this and more.”
Founded over 20 years ago, Falcon Group is one of the largest providers of specialist finance solutions globally – providing in excess of US$20 billion of funding to-date. Having recently added dedicated resources for the North and Greater London, Falcon has also partnered with UKEF and global insurance broker, Aon, in an effort to assist UK businesses seeking export and import financing solutions.
