Thanks to our unique franchisee opportunities, Scott Murcott had no hesitation in joining the Synergy network.

After many years building a successful career and reputation as a formidable, nationally recognized commercial finance expert, Scott Murcott decided that the time was ripe to put all his hard work and experience towards building his own commercial finance broker business.  This week, after many months of meticulous planning and preparation, Scott joined the growing network of Synergy franchisees and has now opened the doors of his brand-new business.

As part of his research process Scott carefully investigated the best possible options for his fledgling business, then after being recommended to speak to Synergy and seeing the many benefits of our franchisee opportunities for himself, he had no hesitation in signing up to become our latest network broker.

What particularly impressed Scott about our franchisee opportunities and what ultimately convinced him to become a franchisee was the Synergy Broker in a Box proposition that not only provides the very highest level of broker support, but also includes the essential FCA compliance without the accompanying high cost and long delays associated with the Regulator’s direct authorisation route.

Scott has recently completed his induction in our new Blackburn offices, but prior to that he held a number of positions within High Street banks, where he not only supported SMEs but also worked as a consultant within various professions.  Later, he became a highly valued and top performing member of a large, well-known brokerage where he has operated for the past four years.  During this period of his career he developed an enviable reputation within the hospitality, licensed, leisure and care sectors for providing professional, individually structured, bespoke and intelligent funding solutions for his clients.

It was this experience and success that persuaded Scott to take the bold decision to leave the comfort of an established brokerage in order to launch his own commercial finance broker business.

Having been told about the Synergy franchisee opportunities and in particular after discovering our Broker in a Box support package that takes all the day-to-day stress and hassle off brokers allowing them to concentrate on serving their clients and building their business, Scott was understandably keen to join our independent broker network.

Scott was particularly impressed by the fact that Synergy brokers also have unique access to the UK’s largest and most comprehensive funding panel that numbers in excess of 200 lending sources.  With this unrivalled funding facility, plus market leading commission terms, he knew that he would always be able to structure the most competitive finance deals for his clients.

Scott’s new business is called Montane Finance Ltd and is based in Derbyshire’s Peak District.  Now not only does he hold a national reach, thanks in-part to the Synergy franchise opportunities, his new business horizons are endless.
