Bamford will take up his new role on 30 January 2006.

Bamford, who previously held senior roles with loans.co.uk, GE Consumer Finance and First National, has been appointed to strengthen Freedom’s corporate client relationships, with a particular focus on increasing the company’s trading partnerships with other financial institutions. Bamford will work closely with Group Managing Director Tony Machin and the Managing Director responsible for Business Development and Europe, Martin Chapman.

Group managing director, Tony Machin, said: “I’m delighted that Patrick has decided to join the team here at Freedom. He enjoys an enviable reputation as an industry big-hitter and I have no doubt he will be able to make an immediate impact and help strengthen the relationships we enjoy with corporate clients.”

Bamford said: “Freedom Finance has an impressive track record of growth and has been voted one of the top 200 fastest growing companies in Europe. When I was asked if I would be interested in helping to build the company’s business relationships with other financial institutions, it was not a difficult decision to make. I’m looking forward to getting started at the end of the month.”
