Truro-based finance house Ignition Credit has expanded its team with the appointment of Richard Lewis as business development manager.

Lewis, who is the son of a South Crofty tin mining geologist, is returning to his roots after almost a decade in the banking world working as a regional motor trade account manager with HBOS in Wales and the south west.

His new role at Ignition Credit will see him reunited with former HBOS colleague Paul Caunter, now sales director of the motor financing specialist.

Caunter said: “We are delighted to have Richard on the team. He is very highly regarded in the industry and at a time when many others are finding things tough, we are actively expanding our business and know that it is essential that we have the right people in the right place.”
