Staff Spotlight Simon Stanton-Hobbs Relationship Manager

Invoice finance isn’t the most well-known funding option, but a lack of in-depth knowledge doesn’t have to be a barrier to using it. Each of our clients are assigned a dedicated Relationship Manager to ensure they’re getting the most from their facility. We spoke to Simon about his role as a Relationship Manager to find out more about how our team work with our clients.

“I ensure our clients are getting the best possible service and value from whatever product we provide to them. Invoice finance is not a well-known funding option, with only around 30,000 businesses using it in the UK.

“20 years' experience working in invoice finance has given me the ability to act as a knowledgeable and trusted advisor to both new and seasoned invoice finance users. The key is being able to truly understand what our clients want to achieve, their needs and business plans. Getting to know a business like this enables us to support in the best way possible for each individual client.

“My role involves collaborating with all sales and operational teams, but my day-to-day task are supported by the Assistant Relationship Management team. The team is a key part of ensuring our clients continue to receive excellent service. Alongside helping UK businesses succeed, my colleagues are the best part of working at Optimum. Good people always doing their best to support each other and our clients, a real team.”

Outside of Optimum, Simon is a keen motorcyclist and enjoys spending time with his fiancé and young son.
