The sales team welcomes four new business development managers to the company – David Baum, Jon Dyer, Morgan Whiteside and Nick Risdale.

Developing operational staff

We also welcomed Craig Durnell as head of operations in Bristol. He has 22 years’ commercial finance expertise and will hold responsibility for a team of 23, coaching and developing operational staff.

Joining Craig is Terry Burke, who joins as relationship manager for customers in the South West. He brings 26 years’ experience in financial services to the role and will work closely with both customers and the sales team.

Funding news

In funding news, the Northern Echo picked on a story about Bibby Financial Services assisting Inshore Fisheries in Redcar, with funding up to £700,000, which will help the seafood wholesaler target a 20 per cent increase in turnover in the next two years.

Hazel Cook, director and shareholder of Inshore Fisheries said “Inshore Fisheries has really turned a corner since working with Bibby Financial Services. They have provided us with a quick cash injection when we really needed it which gave us the ability to maintain the business.”
