Life at Acre
We caught up with Adam, the Business Development Manager here at Acre to find out more about him and what his role at Acre is.
I’m a part of the Business Development team. We’re a two-man band - I work with Robin, who’s our Head of Business Development. I suppose you could compare us to Batman and Robin, but I’m not sure if Robin would be happy with me being Batman.
My main responsibility is setting up demos and onboarding prospect firms onto the Acre platform. The other part of my role is working to onboard lenders.
A typical demo goes like:
As we’re one of, if not the first point of contact at Acre, customers tend to have lot of questions. Most of these are about the commercial terms. We’ve got a different business model to other platforms - you only pay when you earn - so we explain how this will look for their firm. Other questions are about test accounts to trial and how to merge existing data over to Acre.
Before Acre, I was working for Oplo as a Product Manager. Most of my experience has been with Amigo Loans. I’ve had numerous roles across the sector - sector underwriter, manager, BDM, product manager and Head of New Business.
If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m a massive football fan. I support the mighty Bournemouth! I’m also a keen golfer, there’s arguably some room to improve on my technique but you can often find me on the green.
