Lynn Pett from Holsworthy has joined the Folk2Folk team recently as Business Development Officer at the company’s head office in Launceston. Lynn’s remit will be to spread the word of Folk2Folk’s good work throughout the South West region and support new agencies which have opened in Bideford, Crediton, Falmouth, and Midsomer Norton.
She said: “I’m delighted to be onboard with Folk2Folk who have filled a niche which helps the local business community access injections of funds where they’re needed, as well as making sure individuals, or ‘Lenders’, receive the highest interest rates available to them locally.” “Folk2Folk’s ethos is about doing business with people face-to-face, which I really like, and I’d be happy to visit businesses or groups that want to hear about Folk2Folk and how it all works.”
Managing Director David Brown said: “The last few months have been an incredibly successful time for Folk2Folk, both in terms of our growth into new towns in the region and the increase in business we’ve seen. We are delighted to welcome Lynn to the team with her wealth of experience and excellent connections in the area. It’s a perfect opportunity for business groups and organisations to welcome Lynn as a guest speaker, and her appointment will be key in getting our message to those new towns and surrounding areas.”
Lynn Pett previously worked for Barclays for nearly 30 years, including her role as Premier Relationship Manager in North Cornwall. From a farming background, Lynn has always lived in the Holsworthy area. To find out more about Folk2Folk, contact Lynn on 07468 693505, or email pettl@FOLK2FOLK.com.
