Regional Account Manager, Wales
Our regional account manager for Wales, Hannah, joined Bluestone Leasing in early 2021 with more than eight years of experience in the asset finance industry behind her.
Where it all began
Hannah was born and raised in Newport, Wales, where her creativity and friendly nature were evident from the beginning.
“I loved drawing, and anything to do with art and being creative. I have a wonderful memory of sitting at a school table with a queue of children in front of me, each of them asking me to draw them a different Pokémon character. I even wanted to be a cartoon animator for a while, but once I had completed my A levels, I knew I wanted to be out in the world of work as soon as possible.”
The world of work
After her first weekend job in a toy factory (which is apparently not as fun as it sounds), Hannah launched her career in finance with the help of the Jobs Growth Wales programme.
Hannah’s approach to asset finance is to develop long term relationships with clients, and this has often resulted in those clients becoming “more like friends”.
When Hannah is not making cakes for her friends birthdays or dreaming of seeing the Northern Lights from the comfort of a glass igloo, she likes nothing more than camping near a beach with a roaring fire. While she lives in Somerset (luckily, “near some lovely beaches”), Hannah is passionate about helping businesses in her homeland of Wales to grow and succeed through a personal service.
“It’s so important that I get to meet my partners and customers in person where they operate their business, so I make a point of getting out on the road in Wales as much as possible. Plus, I can usually squeeze in some visits to my family during my trips, which is a big positive for me.”
