Moffat (pictured) will be leading on Clean Air Funding Schemes and HTB’s climate-based asset finance proposition.
He brings over 20 years’ experience in the asset finance sector industry, having previously worked as director of corporate sales at Advance Finance and Leasing Ltd for 13 years. Prior to that, he spent four years as a corporate development manager at Lombard Corporate Finance.
As well as driving the bank’s climate-related asset finance activities, Moffat will manage its broker flow business in the North of England, working with some of the UK’s largest intermediaries.
Last year, HTB’s Asset Finance division funded over £24m of climate-based sustainable assets including electric cars and vans, LED lighting, renewable power generation and recycling plants.
Moffat said: “I’m excited to be joining the team at this time in HTB’s story and to play my part in its success.
“Having worked on the other side of the fence for the past 13 years, I have been impressed by HTB’s specialist proposition around brokers and UK businesses.”
Paul Bartley, Asset Finance managing director, HTB, added: “Having Bill join our growing team further enhances our capability to pursue our ambitious growth strategy and support our brokers who are seeing increasing demand for sustainable assets across a wide range of sectors.
“We will continue to support funding for proven technologies as well look to build on last year, in which we significantly increased our funding of assets that help reduce emissions.”
