The Business Finance Team at Aldermore has appointed Steve Kilby as Business Development Manager for London and the south-east of England.

Steve joins the team in helping SMEs in London and the south-east with their invoice finance funding needs and will report into Chris Meldrum, the National Business Development Director at Aldermore. Steve has over 15 years’ experience in Invoice Finance.

Steve joins from ABN AMRO Commercial Finance where he was a Business Development Manager, a role he also held for eight years prior to that. For two years before that, he was a Client Manager. His 15 years in relationship management roles underpin his ability to structure tailored solutions for clients.

Commenting on his new role, Steve Kilby, Business Development Manager for London and the south-east at Aldermore, said:

“Aldermore is an exciting business to be a part of, and its offering for SMEs really stands out from the pack. The Bank’s flexible and individually-tailored approach to lending is refreshing and really helps when trying to provide businesses with the right type of funding for their needs. 

“I am looking forward to seeing how the role develops and using my experience to continue to establish Aldermore as the go-to lender in the south-east.”

Commenting on the appointment, Chris Meldrum, National Business Development Director at Aldermore, said:

“Steve has a significant amount of experience in the Invoice Finance sector and has built strong relationships with businesses in the south-east of England throughout his career. We have appointed Steve to help us continue to raise Aldermore’s profile in the region, so that we can help more businesses to access the funding they need in order to continue to grow, boosting their value to the UK economy. Clients will benefit from his wealth of experience in structuring facilities in a way that will help them to achieve their long-term goals.

“We’re very pleased to have Steve on board and look forward to working with him.”
