Shawbrook extends healthcare division


Paul Hansen and Claire Perman join asset finance team

Shawbrook Asset Finance has expanded its dedicated healthcare division with two new appointments in the last month.

Paul Hansen has joined the team as business development manager with a focus on developing new and existing vendor relationships and sourcing direct funding opportunities. He has over 20 years’ experience in the asset finance industry and, prior to this appointment, was a sales manager responsible for vendors and lessees located in the UK, Ireland and the Nordics.

Hansen has extensive knowledge of transaction structuring, direct sales and vendor account management, joining the successful healthcare team to support and drive the growth aspirations of the division.

Claire Perman has also joined the team as credit assistant, where she is working mainly on proposals for the broker-introduced medical professions business. Previously managing the lease desk for a small vending group, she will use her leasing experience to further improve service levels for the division’s Broker healthcare team.

Shawbrook Asset Finance is part of Shawbrook Bank. The healthcare division entered the market in 1994 and provides medical equipment leasing directly and through a network of brokers and intermediaries.
