Peer-to-peer lender appoints new BD manager

Samantha Fray

Growth Street, the peer-to-peer lending platform, has appointed Samantha Fray as business development manager for the East Midlands.

Fray joins from Aldermore Bank. Prior to this, she worked in SME client management for Bibby Financial Services.

She said: “With many high street banks no longer providing in-branch advice to small businesses, we’ve seen a huge knowledge and experience gap develop meaning that thousands of small businesses across the Midlands are missing out on the finance needed to realise their business’s ambitions.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Growth Street team and to have this opportunity to continue supporting SMEs across the Midlands.”
