Ignition appoints new MD


Truro-based vehicle and SME asset finance provider, Ignition, has announced a new managing director.

Paul Caunter, who has been with Ignition for more than nine years, takes over the position from Alan Tutte, who founded the company in 2004.

Tutte remains committed to the continued success of the business through his investment in parent company Star Group and will be supporting Caunter in his new role through the transition period.

“I’m delighted to be taking over the helm of Ignition,” said Caunter.

“The business is in a very strong position; our last financial year was by far our best on record, which we can attribute to a strong and focussed team, who continue to deliver great solutions and customer service to our clients, forging lasting relationships.

“I am looking forward to growing the team and taking the company to a new and exciting stage in its evolution. I’d like to thank Alan for his leadership in developing Ignition over the last years and his continued support. We’ll work together to ensure the company is in the best possible shape to build on our success and strengthen our reach across key regions and markets.”
