Paul Waite, Director at Rowan Finance, said, "The October to December period was a record quarter for the business, and with a turnover in excess of £250k during this time and an excellent pipeline of work we are in the best possible position to beat the £1m mark this year.
"However growth in 2014 will not come solely from the current set-up, we are well-advanced in developing a new market offering which will see us expand our horizons, and we will appoint the newest addition to the team this month.
"The business has developed a respected profile built on integrity and loyalty, and all these elements together make for a positive, exciting year-ahead."
