Experienced franchisor joins the Franchise Finance team!

Franchise Finance are delighted to announce that Tony Marsh has joined their team of consultants adding to wealth of franchise experience their clients are able to draw on.

Tony is well known and respected by many in the industry having spent several years with Signs Express. He started his career in 1980 with Forward Trust a division of The Midland Bank (now HSBC) as a Finance Sales Executive working with consumers and small businesses in all aspects of asset based funding.

Tony then moved on to working with a small family owned company that quickly grew into a listed business. His roles over 17 years included sales, sales management & business relationship management.

In 2003 Tony joined Signs Express, the leading UK based franchise in the B2B sector and his main role was to recruit new franchisees for new start businesses and resales. A large part of his role was to help new franchisees produce their business plans and liaise with banks and other lenders to ensure that finance was in place. Tony took part in a management buy-out in 2007 becoming a shareholder at that time before selling his equity in late 2015.
