Close Brothers Motor Finance appoints Lisa Watson as Director of Sales – Motor Trader

Close Brothers Motor Finance has appointed Lisa Watson as Director of Sales.

Watson joins the business having most recently worked as a Business Development Director for Assurant. She brings with her a wealth of experience from an extensive career spanning more than 20 years in the motor finance industry and retail banking, which includes Sandicliffe, Capital Bank Motor Finance, the Peter Vardy dealership group, and HSBC.

In her new role, Watson will be instrumental in developing and maintaining Close Brothers Motor Finance’s status as one of the leading motor finance providers in the UK. She will develop and oversee the company’s operating strategy following the pandemic, and her role will be integral in continuing the business’ digital transformation journey.

“I am delighted to have Lisa as part of our team” said Seán Kemple, Managing Director at Close Brothers Motor Finance. “Her expertise, passion and experience are second to none, and I have no doubt she’ll help us to continue to deliver a seamless service to our dealers and customers, now and in the future.”

Watson added: “I’m incredibly excited by my new role at Close Brothers Motor Finance. Having previously been a client of the business for many years, I have watched with interest, the rapid transformational changes that have taken place, and at a speed I have never seen before in any organisation. This makes it an exciting prospect for me as we continue to move at pace developing new industry-leading products and services in line with the changes we are now seeing in consumer behaviours.

“I was also attracted to the organisation as one of our primary focus points is caring for colleagues and ensuring gender equality remains at the forefront of our thinking and development, something I’m incredibly passionate about.”
