Academy Leasing, the Warrington-based vehicle and equipment finance provider owned by AIM-listed company 1pm, has acquired a specialist brokerage in the Wirral.

CarFinance2U, which is based in West Kirkby, was co-founded by Dan Rothwell and Mark Burgess in 2011 and provides vehicle finance facilities to customers across the UK.

Mark Burgess, co-founder of CarFinance2U, said: “Joining forces with Academy Leasing, a well-established and respected motor and equipment finance provider also based in the North-West, gives us a fantastic opportunity to further develop the CarFinance2U business and take it to the next level.

“As part of a much bigger group, we will be able to utilise greater operational resources across all aspects of the business, not least access to more finance through Academy’s panel of additional lenders as well as significant opportunities for cross-selling and the cross-referral of customers. We now also have the potential to develop a direct customer offering to complement our existing relationships with our motor dealership network through specialist lead generation and marketing capabilities.”
