Finance Directors expand in Yorkshire with the appointment of new Managing Director

9th March 2017

SME Finance Partners, an advisory firm providing part time and project finance directors, has set up a new office in Yorkshire after impressive growth.

SME Finance Partners, headquartered in Miskin, has launched its new operating arm in Yorkshire as it looks to apply the successful formula to a wider market.  To head up the newly-named SME Finance Partners Yorkshire division of SME Finance Partners, Jason Cicero has been appointed to the position of Managing Director.

Speaking of the expansion Managing Partner, Chris Thomas, said: “Since we established the business in 2013, we’ve grown a great client base working with some fantastic businesses in our core South Wales market, and that remains our primary focus. We’ve had clients in Yorkshire since day one who we continue to work with, and now is the right time to build a greater presence in the area.  There are lots of similarities between the two regions in terms of industrial heritage and values, and it’s a market that we want to develop and replicate there the success that we’ve achieved here in South Wales.”

“I’ve known Jason for a several years having previously worked with him.  More and more SME’s are seeing the benefit of having a part time finance director as part of their team, and Jason’s experience, knowledge and presence will be highly valued by our clients.  The fact that he’s a proud Welshman who has lived with his family in Yorkshire for the last 17 years means that Jason is the ideal man to lead our expansion plans in the region.”

Speaking of his appointment as Managing Director of SME Finance Partners Yorkshire, Mr Cicero said: “This is an extremely exciting time for me and the business. From our base in Cardiff, we have worked with some of Yorkshire’s best known corporate businesses for a number of years, but by establishing a permanent base in the heart of Yorkshire and building the team to scale the business, we will now be better placed to help some of Yorkshire’s brightest SMEs”.

Mr Cicero, who has over 20 years senior finance experience continued: “Not only do we want to impart businesses and organisations with the valued knowledge that safeguards their finances, but we want to ensure we do our bit to stimulate the local economy whilst protecting jobs and creating new opportunities during potentially testing times ahead.”

Mr Cicero, who originally hails from Cardiff, is a keen sports enthusiast and RFU-qualified rugby coach.

SME Finance Partners provides a flexible finance director service to small and medium sized businesses which is tailored to their own, specific needs. This gives business owners high calibre finance resource and knowledge at a fraction of the cost of employing a full time finance director.
