Gareth Billington is self-motivated and a committed team member with a breadth of experience across Commercial and Corporate Banking.

Gareth Billington has spent a monumental 16 years at Lloyds Bank.  He began his career in 2002 as an Assistant Manager and progressed through a number of roles. Fast forward 10 successful years to 2012 and Gareth secured the role of Senior Manager in Commercial Banking.  Managing a team of 9 people and maintaining the key professional contact for significant geography and several large conurbations was paramount in this role. He ended his career at Lloyds Bank as a Relationship Director. With all this experience and knowledge under his belt, Gareth feels ready to take the next step.

In Addition , what Gareth found interesting about Synergy Commercial Finance was the unique relationships they have with both the AR’s and their panel of Funders. Having spoken to a couple of our existing Franchisees, Gareth collated positive feedback from everyone he’d spoken to, which ticked many boxes as to why he wanted to join Synergy Commercial Finance.

Gareth highlighted one of the main reasons he joined our network was because of the extensive “package” we have to offer. Our ‘Broker in a box’ services allow Franchisee’s to focus solely on signing deals off. Our qualified in-house team take away the rest of their stress. This also enables Gareth to use his full spectrum of experience as well as maintaining face to face contact with clients and professionals.

Gareth has a Diploma in Banking as well as further accreditations across the manufacturing, property and agricultural sectors. He will be operating under the name of 16 Finance Limited. We would like to wish Gareth Billington the very best of luck!
