SPECIALIST commercial vehicle broker, LCV Finance & Leasing, has become a franchise of the Bridle Group.
The Hertfordshire-based broker started trading as a Bridle Appointed Representative from the beginning of December 2020.
Originally an AR of Kew Vehicle Leasing, LCV Finance & Leasing began the transition to Bridle when Kew was purchased by the Group at the end of September.
Stuart Gazeley, the director of LCV, said:
You only have to consider the punching power of Bridle and the opportunities a Bridle franchise operation has to offer – such as access to all funding platforms, a large admin back office and support team, and an industry-respected senior management team in your corner – to appreciate that in an uncertain world this opportunity provides as close to ‘belt and braces’ as you can possibly get.
Also included as part of the Bridle package, added Gazeley, was an in-house compliance officer, cutting edge fleet procurement through Fleet Procure, and a bespoke website and CRM built in association with Automotus.
Tano Di Girolamo, Bridle franchise director, added:
We are delighted to be able to work with Stuart next year. Stuart’s career as an LCV specialist goes back a long way and we are looking forward to using the tools, training and support we have to offer in order to help Stuart and his team grow fast and strong.
Gazeley added that he was gearing up to go “great guns” in 2021 under the new Bridle association.
