Bibby Financial Services (BFS) has appointed Aman Gill as its head of trade services.
The move comes as the firm looks to offer additional support to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) trading domestically and overseas.
Joining BFS with almost 11 years’ experience in the financial services sector, Gill has held a range of senior positions in financial services, supporting SMEs, middle market and corporate businesses.
Mostly recently, he held the position of regional sales director at IGF Group.
His role as head of trade services is his third at BFS, having previously been a technical manager and relationship manager.
He started his career as a relationship support manager at Barclays Corporate.
In his new role at BFS, Gill will focus on supporting the trade finance team with structuring bespoke funding arrangements to provide SMEs with the working capital they need. He will also work to develop BFS’s product range.
Gill said: “BFS is a market leading independent funder. It is innovative in its approach, and has a high calibre of professionals within the business that I look forward to working with.
“As head of trade services, I am keen to develop BFS’s trade finance offering and support more businesses as they expand internationally.”
Phil Tobin, managing director of trade finance at Bibby Financial Services, added: “Now, more than ever, importing and exporting businesses have an important role to play in the UK’s future economic success. Having access to funding, as well as the right global expertise and experience, is crucial to this.
“We’re pleased that Aman is joining our expanding trade finance team as we grow our support for businesses trading overseas.”
