Having previously been COO of the Company, Mr Rimmer was reappointed as Interim Group CEO three months ago. He is a widely experienced senior executive with a strong commercial, financial and operational track record in financial services for over 25 years. He was previously UK CEO of Bibby Financial services, rapidly building the business and doubling its profits to become the largest independent operator in the invoice finance market.
John Newman, Time Finance Chairman commented:
“We are delighted to have secured Ed’s talents on a permanent basis. He is a well-respected and proven Chief Executive with an exceptional record and was a natural choice for the Group. Not only does he bring enormous depth of experience of the wider FS market from his time with Bibby, but he also has an in-depth understanding and grasp of the Group from his time as its COO. We are excited about the vision and leadership that he will bring to the business and for the future of the Group”.
Ed Rimmer, CEO, added:
“Time Finance is a strong business operating in a sector that has played a critical role helping small businesses across the UK through the disruption of Covid-19. The Group has the opportunity for further development of its position as a credible alternative to the high street banks as a multi-product independent SME funder helping businesses to grow post COVID. I believe it is very well placed to take advantage of a number of opportunities that should arise over the coming months and beyond and I look forward to leading the business through the next stage of its journey, delivering increasing returns for all of the Group’s stakeholders.”
