ART Business Loans has recruited Rozna Haque to join its lending team. She is the first woman to join the team, increasing its number to four. Roz brings with her extensive experience and understanding of the finance sector and customer relationship building – both equally valuable as ART’s personal approach to assessing loan applications is central to its offer.
Roz’s appointment will help ART, whose office is based at the Innovation Birmingham Campus, meet increasing demand from businesses across the West Midlands unable to access any or all of the finance they need from the banks.
ART has experienced considerable growth over the past two years. In 2014/15 total lending rose by 77% to £3.1m and its maximum loan size was increased from £100,000 to £150,000. The current financial year is looking equally buoyant as the economy picks up and businesses seek finance to support growth and stability.
Commenting on her appointment Roz says: “ART has a crucial role to play in ensuring that businesses can access the finance they need. I am looking forward to working as part of the team to make 2015/16 another record year – which will help to create or safeguard hundreds of local jobs. I’ll be helping to raise awareness amongst the business community of what ART can offer, hopefully adding some fresh ideas as well as a female perspective to the mix.”
