Pierce appoints corporate finance director

Blackburn-based Pierce Chartered Accountants has appointed Kevin Steven as its new corporate finance director.

Kevin brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the finance sector, and has previously worked in senior roles for RBS and ThinCats.

In his new role, he will help clients gain access to the right type of finance for them, drawing on experience both in traditional banking and alternative finance working with owner-managed SMEs.

He said: "The external funding market is currently very dynamic, and clients will be required to engage with funders in a way that they have not had to historically. My background of direct lending will give clients a clear insight into what funders require of them and how best to structure that support in order for clients to meet their strategic objectives.

"The Pierce approach is all about relationship building and that is something I’m looking forward to, working closely with businesses, while bringing a fresh pair of eyes and perspective for the benefit of our clients."
