Paragon appoints Fraser Tilley as regional asset finance director for Scotland
Specialist lender and savings bank Paragon has announced the appointment of Fraser Tilley as a new regional asset finance director for Scotland.
Mr Tilley joins from Santander, where he spent nine years as Scottish regional director for asset finance, leading the business in growing the commercial lending for the region.
Prior to that, he was with Bank of Scotland for over 20 years in a number of relationship management and asset finance roles.
Mr Tilley will work alongside regional director Hilary Carberry to develop the direct asset finance proposition in Scotland and to help broaden the scope of opportunities available to Paragon from the Scottish market.
Ken McKeating, sales director for asset finance at Paragon, said: “It’s great to have Fraser on board with us at Paragon. His wealth of asset finance knowledge, alongside his regional sales experience will be hugely beneficial in growing our proposition across Scotland.”
Mr Tilley added: “From my initial meeting with Paragon I was impressed by how progressive and focussed they are as a business, across all areas, when delivering the most appropriate solution for the customer.
“I now look forward to further developing Paragon’s SME proposition in Scotland and to assisting customers, old and new, in the process.”
