The British Business Bank has appointed Paul Jones to a new position as Senior Manager, UK Network for the South West.
The British Business Bank – the government-owned economic development bank dedicated to making finance markets work better for smaller businesses – is establishing a UK Network, with team members based within each of the English regions and the three Devolved Nations.
The UK Network was originally announced as part of the Government’s modern Industrial Strategy in November 2017, with a remit to identify and help to reduce imbalances in access to finance for smaller businesses across the UK.
Paul will represent the UK Network across the South West and will engage closely with business finance stakeholders in the area. He will be working alongside a team of three other Senior Managers covering the South and East of England.
Paul Jones, Senior Manager, UK Network said: ”I’m very much looking forward to engaging with all stakeholders of the South West to fully understand the region’s financial eco-system, with a lens on helping SME’s in the South West to access the finance they need to grow and prosper. I’ll be raising the profile of the British Business Bank within the region and making sure that smaller businesses and business finance partners are aware of the finance options available through the Bank.”
