Experienced industry finance professional Chris Hughes has joined the team at Franchise Finance. Following a twenty-four year career at NatWest, Chris was looking for a change. He joins Franchise Finance with eight years of direct industry experience from within the bank’s Central Franchise Team.
Chris will be helping co-owners Chris Roberts and Stuart Walsh to deliver the company’s services, including managing prospective franchisees through their business funding application process by setting in place a solid personal business plan and training them in how to effectively deliver the application.
Finding someone with the skillset and experience required to handle this specialist work was a real challenge, but the company are very happy with their new appointment. Stuart commented: “We are delighted to welcome Chris to the team. He is incredibly well-respected in the industry and has vast experience in franchise funding applications and business planning. He has handled thousands of applications for NatWest over the past eight years so he knows how a business plan needs to be delivered to succeed in securing the funding required!”
