SME Finance Partners are pleased to announce that they are expanding their team and this week welcome Jon Thorn as Portfolio Finance Controller. Jon will be working with SME businesses, supporting business owners with their financial management on a flexible, part-time basis.

Jon joins the team having trained as a Chartered Accountant with PWC, before gaining wider industry experience with the steel manufacturer, Celsa Steel.

Introducing Jon Thorn to the team, Chris Thomas, commented: “Jon’s appointment is an exciting one for us and comes on the back of our continued growth over recent years. We help business owners that need the expertise of a Finance Director, but don’t need the risk of employing someone full time. Jon’s appointment as Financial Controller broadens our range of finance resources, enabling us to provide even more hands on, added value to business owners.”

Jon’s key strength lies in producing clear, concise financial information to help business owners better understand their financial performance.  He will also support businesses that need financial projections to underpin raising finance to fund growth.  Outside of work, Jon has a young family, and he enjoys keeping fit cramming in trampolining coaching and even some rock climbing in his spare time – a little bit different to the world of finance!

Darren Edwards added that: “By having a range of skill sets and experience levels within the team our Finance Directors can help businesses at the strategic level with fundraising and managing growth, whilst our Finance Controllers can provide more hands-on day-to-day support at an affordable level. Jon will work with existing clients and support our team of Finance Directors, enabling us to provide an enhanced level of resource to the businesses we work with.”
