BFS makes four new appointments

Bibby Financial Services (BFS) has announced four new appointments across Scotland and the North of England.

Wayne Spratt re-joins BFS as a business development manager in Yorkshire following sales and operational roles at Aldermore Bank and RBS Invoice Finance. He has 15 years’ experience in the invoice finance industry and first joined BFS in 2002.

Casey Baldwin also joins BFS Yorkshire as a business development executive. Prior to joining, Casey was Assistant Relationship Manager at both Aldermore Bank and RBS Invoice Finance.

Lee McDonnell has been appointed as business development executive for BFS Manchester having previously worked as credit controller.

In Scotland, Ronan Patrick Fallon has been appointed as a sales executive. He previously worked as a risk and recoveries administrator in BFS’s Manchester office.

Stephen Johnson, regional sales director – North at Bibby Financial Services, said: “We’ve seen considerable growth in the North of England and Scotland over the past year as more businesses look to access funding they need to grow.

“Expanding our team in Scotland and key areas in the North of England such as Manchester, Leeds and Bradford will undoubtedly enable us to further grow our support for local businesses and the intermediary community.

“In recent years, we have grown significantly both in relation to the number of businesses we support, and the products and services we provide to SMEs of all sizes.

“Last year we wrote one in six of all invoice finance deals in the country and advanced more than £3.1bn to UK businesses helping them to grow.

“Our people are at the heart of everything we do and in order to achieve our ambitious growth strategy, we need to continue to attract new talent, in addition to retaining our home-grown expertise. I’m delighted to welcome our new joiners and I’m confident that they will make a significant contribution to our UK growth strategy over the years to come.”
