Nic Franklin is the latest to recognise that synergy offers the UK’s best franchise opportunities

It was way back in June of this year that we manned our stand at the NACFB Expo, which was held at the National Exhibition Centre.  As we reported at the time, we had a phenomenal day with lots of interest from a diverse range of visitors. Some were wanting to know more about Synergy Commercial Finance. Others were looking for advice and assistance to obtain the best commercial finance solutions.  While there were also a large number of visitors to our stand who were interested in learning how Synergy was able to provide the UK’s best franchise opportunities.  Even as recently as last week the NACFB effect was still being felt when we welcomed Nic Franklin as our newest Appointed Representative.

Nic, who is based in the North East of England, came to see us at the NACFB Expo and he was impressed enough to make the decision to join us.  He undertook his induction at our York offices last week and we are delighted to welcome him as the latest member of our national network of commercial finance brokers.

Having spoken to us Nic immediately recognised that Synergy offers what is undoubtedly one of the best franchise opportunities within the commercial finance sector and we have no doubt whatsoever that he will become a valuable asset to our national team, bringing an exceptional level of experience as well as valuable individual financial skills.  

For many years Nic was a successful relationship manager with Lloyds Bank, more latterly as an Accredited Property Specialist. Within this role he managed an impressive portfolio of SME clients in the real estate sector, providing funding and support for investment and development transactions in the North East of England.  His reputation for credit sanctioning and the quality of his credit papers and deal broking was also highly appreciated and he has had a number of articles published detailing customer case studies.

Now, having established his own broker business, we are delighted that Nic has chosen to provide his unique experience and knowledge to his expanding catalogue of clients via the Synergy broker network.

In researching the best franchise opportunities Nic was particularly impressed by the range of financial solutions that we offer, as well as by the unbeatable franchisee support that we provide to all our brokers.  This includes, of course, our unique ‘Broker in a Box’ support package.

Add to this exclusive access to what is the UK’s biggest and most comprehensive funding panel – now numbering over 200 lending sources – plus immediate FCA compliance, and you will quickly appreciate why Synergy has been described as one of the UK’s best franchise opportunities within the commercial finance sector.
