New Faces and Head Office Mark Next Chapter for Transmit Start-Ups

HOME / Transmit News / New Faces and Head Office Mark Next Chapter for Transmit Start-Ups

A round of appointments and a new head office mark the beginning of the next exciting chapter for Transmit Group.

Demand from entrepreneurs for our award-winning services has seen our expanding team outgrow its original base and move into a much bigger new office at Northern Design Centre, Gateshead.

Three new faces have joined the existing Transmit team and further recruitment is expected as our business finance and support services continue to grow in popularity.

Suzy Jackson, former Senior Digital Journalist at BQ, has been appointed Marketing Manager. Luke McStea and Sophie Cooke have joined the team as administrative assistants; Luke from Unipres, and Sophie from Alnwick Castle, where she led Harry Potter tours.

Suzy said: “Having spent a few years quizzing entrepreneurs about their lives and businesses, the opportunity to get involved at the beginning of brand-new business stories is very exciting. Transmit’s ‘no talking down’ attitude resonates strongly with me, and I can’t wait to shout about it!”

The office move comes just weeks after we celebrated the fifth anniversary of subsidiary company, Transmit Start-Ups. To mark the milestone, we set ourselves a challenge to become the UK’s number one Start-Up Loans lender, delivering loans to 5,000 entrepreneurs by April 2020.

Commercial Director Richard Myers said: “We set up Transmit with an aim to shake up the UK’s business support landscape and to give entrepreneurs the level and style of service they need and deserve.

“These latest appointments, our office move and our continuing growth show the appetite for this refreshing approach and we’re excited to see where this latest chapter takes us.”

The Transmit team has now grown to 27, with offices in Glasgow as well as Gateshead.
