Tim Bridson has joined Cornerstone Commercial Finance as Senior Commercial Manager.
Tim, who has a banking career spanning 40 years, joins from NatWest where he latterly worked as Director of Commercial and Corporate Banking, covering Swansea, West and Mid Wales. He becomes the first remote-based Senior Commercial Manager in Wales for Cornerstone and will be responsible for providing support to Welsh SME’s.
Cornerstone Commercial is part of the Cornerstone Finance Group – a hub of financial industry experts offering specialist interlinking services that work together to provide unrivalled service. The Group consists of commercial finance, commercial insurance, finance, protection and wealth.
Tim, who lives near Carmarthen, has spent the majority of his career supporting SME’s in the South Wales area, helping them to achieve growth ambitions. He is a specialist in the agriculture, manufacturing, leisure and renewable energy sectors and will seek to develop Cornerstone Commercial’s offering in these areas.
“I am hugely excited to be joining Cornerstone at this time. The business continues to grow and the opportunities to support SME’s in Wales are vast.
“As the economy opens up post-Covid, we are seeing an increasing number of businesses reaching out for support. As traditional routes narrow their funding streams, businesses are looking elsewhere to access funding. At Cornerstone we offer clients support, working in partnership with them, to help cashflow and access to funding so that their businesses grow and flourish.”
Haydn Thomas, Chief Commercial Officer at Cornerstone Finance Group, commented:
“I am delighted that Tim has joined us. He brings with him a wealth of experience and appointing him to a remote-based role is an important step in the Cornerstone journey.
“We hope to build our team in the same manner so that we have a network of successful commercial managers across the UK, supporting businesses with their growth plans.”
