UK-based recruiting contract finance provider Sonovate has appointed Richard Mansell as its new chief operations officer to oversee the company’s growth plans.
Mansell previously worked as operations director at Barclaycard for the last three years where he ran three business units and was responsible for driving business transformation and change across the customer journey.
In his new role at Sonovate, Mansell will be responsible for the day-to-day running of operations across the company, ensuring the team works cohesively and collectively as the business expands.
“There’s a real creative edge to Sonovate and the way it approaches financing in the recruitment space,” Mansell said. “Its potential is huge and I’m looking forward to working at the company as it continues to expand both within the UK and internationally.”
Founded in 2012 by former recruiters Richard Prime and Damon Chapple, Sonovate provides finance and the associated back-office contractor management technology to recruitment agencies placing contractors. It directly addresses the cashflow challenges and administrative headaches these agencies face – something the traditional lenders have consistently failed to do
“We’re delighted to welcome Richard to the team,” Damon Chapple, co-founder and co-CEO of Sonovate, said. “His proven success and wealth of experience will be invaluable as we move forward.”
