New Services at Hornby’s

May 22, 2017

Joining team Hornby is Karina Gallagher formerly of Nat West bank and with over 20 years’ experience in the banking sector.

Karina is not only extremely well known but friendly, driven and very client focused. She will be heading up our joint new venture J F Hornby Corporate Solutions which aims to give businesses that ‘x factor’ they have been missing.

As a business it pushes us onto the next level of client care, attention and being that ‘one stop shop’ for all things financial. Karina’s role will range from looking at financing options to cost savings to a virtual outsourced financial director role for the larger business. Working within the banking sector she saw first-hand many great business opportunities which unfortunately just couldn’t get the required level of funding due to either restriction of lenders or the financials not being up to scratch.

In her new role Karina will make the process of raising funds a seamless turnkey operation from correct application of the financial data to unrestricted access to all funders. Already she has secured direct access into £400m pounds worth of funding for the region.

Karina has only been in her role for just over a week but in that time she has started the process of raising the funds in a multi-million pound acquisition, saved 2 clients a combined £30,000 in costs and taken on two consultancy positions – talk about girl power!

This new business is a fantastic opportunity not only for our existing clients but for new clients also. There is also no pre-requisite that you have to change accountants either – you may just want some robust commercial help and advice. Either way Karina would be delighted to hear from friends old and new, her new email is
