Swift appoints regional account manager

Swift has appointed Graeme Wade as regional account manager for the South of England.

Wades appointment completes the sales team which now consists of four regional account managers, covering strategic geographical areas, in addition to Brian West looking after national accounts.

Swift, whose gross new business lending in the first quarter of 2006 has grown by 73% higher than for the corresponding period in 2005, has been building its sales team over the past twelve months as part of expansion plans after its purchase by Alchemy Partners in May 2004.

Zena Campbell, Swifts sales manager, says: With Graemes appointment my sales team is now complete, He brings a great deal of sales experience and knowledge of the intermediary market to us which will be invaluable.

Filling this important role in the South of England was the last piece of the jigsaw and I am sure Graeme will be very successful.

Wade added: Moving to Swift fulfils an ambition to work with a company which is actively seeking to grow and has big plans for the future. I am looking forward to being part of that future.
