MAF Finance Group: Jonathan Thompson and John Anderson
Financial intermediary MAF Finance Group, owned by Begbies Traynor Group, has appointed Jonathan Thompson as senior director of healthcare and John Anderson as director of healthcare.
The pair have experience of structuring deals delivering complex, multi-layered debt facilities for a range of businesses across the sector. Thompson has more than 40 years’ banking experience in senior healthcare roles at Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays; and Anderson has more than 15 years’ corporate banking experience, beginning with Bank of Scotland Corporate, before spending 11 years at Barclays as a healthcare relationship director.
MAF director Dave Chapman, said: “Having both Jonathan and John join MAF at this crucial stage of our growth is really important for us. With these new appointments, we are well on the way to creating one of the premier healthcare teams in the UK and, with the help of Begbies Traynor Group, we are building a strong future for MAF and the businesses we help to grow.”
Thompson said: “We’re both looking forward to joining the strong existing team at MAF who have developed a true sector-leading brokering proposition within healthcare. Even in this climate, the sector is highly attractive to investors, and the market is very liquid which presents a multitude of options to support growth and development plans of ambitious operators.”
Mike Gascoigne, MAF director and head of healthcare, added: “We’re expanding our team with talented experts, and they bring with them a wealth of experience that healthcare businesses need now more than ever. We’re looking forward to enhancing our relationships with our funders further as we help existing and new clients to achieve their future goals.”
