New Head of Lending to lead GC Business Finance into fresh era of growth


We’re delighted to announce that Chris Hutchison has joined us as Head of Lending to drive growth and awareness of our loan and investment products and services.

Chris joins us from RBS Group and brings over 30 years’ experience in commercial banking, asset finance and SME support to his new role.

Chris said: “GC Business Finance is one of the country’s most respected alternative finance providers, working with and funding thousands of businesses that would otherwise simply not exist. What we have to offer is a unique ladder of finance that helps businesses of all sizes to grow and transition at the many different stages in their life, whether they need angel investors to back a life changing medical device, support to quickly capitalise on an export opportunity or start up funding to launch a new venture.

My role within the team will be to grow our reputation even further, proactively building awareness of our services across an ever evolving and expanding audience – from the banks and LEPS to start up networks and influencers.

Paul Breen, Director of GC Business Finance, said: “Chris has spent the past three decades working at the heart of commercial finance and SME support and will be a huge asset to our team. He understands what makes SMEs and start ups tick and just how vital flexible and responsive funds are in helping pre-start, start-up and existing businesses grow.
