"My goal is to work with the broker community and provide them with great products that fulfil both their needs and the needs of their customers"
SME finance provider, White Oak UK, has appointed Matt Phillips as its new head of broker and strategic partnerships.
Matt joined White Oak in 2009 as sales team manager and was the driving force behind White Oak’s client referral scheme, which has since generated over £87 million in origination from more than 230 introducers.
White Oak UK, who rebranded from LDF earlier this year, provided over £511 million in funding to UK businesses in 2017, and earlier this year broke £1 billion on its own book since its launch four years prior.
Matt said: “I’m delighted to be appointed to this vital role at an exciting time for the company. My goal is to work with the broker community and provide them with great products that fulfil both their needs and the needs of their customers, all of which will be supported by great service from people who understand their individual requirements.”
Andy Davies, group sales director at White Oak UK, commented: “Matt’s appointment demonstrates our commitment to increase our presence in the larger end of the SME market, and further engagement with the Broker community will help us to achieve this goal. Matt will drive the expansion of our Broker offering, ensuring that we provide a range of products that no other funder can match.”
