Promotions at Close

Close Brothers Motor Finance has promoted John Cassidy to director of commercial partners. In a career at Close spanning almost 12 years, Cassidy has led the sales and operations teams across all the UK territories in which the business operates. Most recently, he served as head of brokers and partnerships. Prior to that, he worked for HFC Bank and then HSBC for 17 years.

Matt King has been promoted to a new head of partners role, reporting to John Cassidy and working on building a network of potential commercial partners. Joining Close in 2017 to lead the national sales team responsible for franchising and national broker relationships, King subsequently became head of sales transformation and capability in early 2019.

Managing director Sean Kemple said: “John and Matt have been instrumental to our success. Their expertise in sales, relationship management and finding new routes to market is second to none.”
