BUSINESSES in Tipperary are set to benefit from the local approach of Close Brothers Group plc, the UK’s specialist financial services group, which has extended its operations to the Republic of Ireland, appointing Cormac O’Boyle as Sales Director for Close Brothers Commercial Finance’s asset finance division.

Mr O’Boyle, who will be based in Wexford but will also cover South Leinster & Munster, has over twenty years experience in finance having begun his career in Retail banking at AIB.

In his roles at AIB Finance and Leasing and latterly with Lombard Ireland he had responsibility for the South East of Ireland and is well aware of the challenges facing businesses outside the capital.

Mr O’Boyle is keen to raise awareness of the value of asset finance, which provides funding for companies looking to purchase assets including vehicles, plant machinery and equipment and could mean the difference between survival or failure for many businesses.

He said; “Getting businesses going again and boosting employment and GDP are at the core of what the government is trying to do, but without access to finance firms cannot make crucial investments in technology, print, machinery and transport.

“We have the know-how and experience to ensure that customers are supported and have the funding available to ensure that they can continue to operate and invest in future growth opportunities.”
