MotoNovo is a fast-growing, innovative financial services business and part of Aldermore Bank. Having grown from 200-800 people in 6 years, we recognise the importance of investing in our people’s development and supporting them to adapt to the fast-changing needs of the business and marketplace.

Project purpose 

We set up a Coaching Partnership as an investment in the development of Regional Managers and Senior Leaders at MotoNovo Finance. Recognising the important role of these leadership communities in achieving MotoNovo’s ambitious target of ‘3 billion in 3 years’, the business wanted to provide tailored support and challenge through Executive Coaching.
