Skipton Business Finance celebrates 1st year in West Midlands

Skipton Business Finance celebrated the 1st birthday of its regional centre in Birmingham by hosting an extravagant James Bond evening for clients and the local business community.

The invoice financier set its sights on expanding into the West Midlands in 2011, prompting the opening of an office in Baskerville House, Broad Street. It now has three regional centres in Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham, as well as its headquarters in Skipton.

To celebrate the occasion, a private screening of the new James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ was arranged for close to 100 valued business associates and clients based in the region.

Guests and SBF staff enjoyed drinks in the Manhattan Suite of the Broadway Casino, before making their way over to Odeon cinema for the 23rd film in the James Bond series.

Speaking after the event, Robin Peers, Regional Director said: "It was really positive to see such a great turnout and is a testament to how we've embedded our brand into Birmingham".

Robin also said: "Skipton Business Finance aspires to be a UK-leading financier in the invoice finance market and to maintain our position as a major, client-focussed organisation in the North of England and now the Midlands.

"We want to continue growing and developing our client-oriented business model, which we can only achieve by ensuring that our clients and business associates are delivered the best service in the industry", he concluded.
