Managing director P J Murray, who was the NACFB’s education director for five years, said he was delighted with Keith Heron’s appointment: “I have worked with Keith for many years; his professionalism, knowledge of the market and contacts within the industry will add substantial value to the business and benefit the clients we serve.”

Keith Heron conceded that some will question his return to broking at a time when the supply of business finance remains scarce. He said, “It would be naive to suggest that lenders are opening their coffers to SMEs but there are still sufficient lenders in the market who are prepared to write good quality business.

“And while the credit crisis has caused widespread funding problems, it has had the positive effect of purging the market of amateur brokers who relied exclusively on sub-prime lenders, thereby providing an opportunity for professionals to show their skills.”
