Hilton-Baird Group reaches 20 year milestone


The Hilton-Baird Group is this month celebrating its 20th anniversary as a business.

Alex Hilton-Baird founded commercial finance brokerage Hilton-Baird Financial Solutions in August 1997 while studying for a Masters degree, and has since seen the Hilton-Baird brand grow into a group of five companies that directly employees more than 50 people across the UK and Poland.

Now additionally comprising a commercial debt collection agency, risk management specialist, lead generation agency and, most recently, an advisory firm, the Group offers a wide portfolio of complementary services to SMEs and the UK and European asset based finance and insolvency markets.

Alex Hilton-Baird, CEO of the Hilton-Baird Group, commented:

“It gives me immense pride and satisfaction to say that the company is now 20 years old. It has come a long way since I started out by cold calling businesses from my student flat in north London to see if I could add any value to their search for funding.

“With over 50 full-time employees we are able to deliver market leading solutions to the banking and insolvency firms we work with on a daily basis, helping our clients to generate new business and manage their risk successfully.

“It’s been a challenging but rewarding journey so far – one that we couldn’t have managed without the support of our clients and industry colleagues – and we look forward to continuing those relationships over the next 20 years.”
