What a year!
Despite the Covid19 Pandemic and its effects on the Nation in the last 2 years, the Goodman team have astoundingly seen through funding of well over £200 million this year, with the exact figure sitting at £226,320,173.
In the backdrop of the pandemic, the team are and delighted to have been part of funding UK start-ups, SMEs, and PLC to help speed up the recovery process and help Britain build back better from the impacts of Covid19. With our bespoke and handheld service, we firmly believe we can carry this sentiment into 2022 to further accelerate pandemic recovery development and get British business back on track. Here’s to funding well over £200 million again!
Goodman Corporate’s Compliance and Admin Director, Roxanne Goodman, commented that: “2021 has been a bit of a double-edged sword, we have seen record lending across the business and all the team have done phenomenally well supporting business with acquisitions, cash flow and liquidity.
However, it’s also been a year of challenges; with many of the team contracting Covid at some point in the last 12 months, along with other personal family challenges along the way. Collectively, the support they have given each other has been unwavering, and I am proud to call them all my colleagues and friends.”
Our Group Sales Director, Stefan Radymski, also commented “2021 what a year! Lots of up and downs, business and personal challenges have really tested us this year, but I’m proud of how we always knuckle down together and get the job done for our clients and importantly for each other. We often talk about the ‘Golden Circle’ at GCF and that is exactly what we have: a group of likeminded, passionate, caring entrepreneurs who go the extra mile no matter what is thrown at them.
This year’s figures have been mind-blowing, and, as Group Sales Director nothing gives me more pleasure than to see the business continue to grow! We have supported hundreds of businesses this year and welcomed many new clients to the group. We have continued to support our existing clients and we thank them for their continued support. Attrition has remained very low within the portfolio, and it has been great to see a rise in invoice finance opportunities towards the back end of 2021.
Our expertise within the ABL sector has resulted in our largest ever deal in 2021 – a deal we won’t forget with a great result for a client who’s been with us for over 10 years now.
We have grown the team and added experience and quality so that our clients will continue to benefit from allrounders who know both sides of the fence.
A cracking 2021 must come to an end, it’s now time to down tools, recharge the batteries and get ready for an exciting 2022.”
A massive thank you and well done is in order for each member of the Goodman team.
Thank you, well done, and Happy Christmas to Jane Bexton, Tom Holmes, Sam Lewis, Christopher Preston, Kelly Wealthall, and Elicia Boni
With a huge thanks and congratulations in order to Goodman’s directors Paul Goodman, Roxanne Goodman, and Stefan Radymski!
