IGF hires heavyweight
IGF, commercial finance provider for SMEs, has announced the appointment of Mark Lindsay as managing director of its invoice finance practice.
Following the rapid development of IGF’s asset-based lending facilities, IGF is seeking to replicate this trend across its entire product offering. Mark will be responsible for increasing the client base and lending book of the business’ established invoice finance division, developing new financial products and continuing the firm’s recent hiring run across the country.
Mark moves from his previous role as managing director at Bibby Trade and International Finance, where he spent more than five years leading a team of trade finance experts providing finance solutions to SMEs. Prior to this, he was a regional manager with Aldermore Invoice Finance, business development director at Mitchell Charlesworth and head of business development at RBS Invoice Finance.
Mark Lindsay, managing director of invoice finance, Independent Growth Finance, said:
“IGF is a respected brand that clients and the industry value, so it has a solid base to grow its invoice finance offering. Businesses are becoming more aware of alternative financing and I look forward to working with the team at IGF to combine our expertise and strengthen this longstanding brand.
John Onslow, CEO, Independent Growth Finance, said:
“IGF had a record year in 2016 and we have big ambitions as we move in to 2017. It is essential that we have an experienced leader with a deep understanding of growing a business and supporting clients to grow IGF’s invoice finance division. Across the board, our clients continue to benefit from a senior management team that sets us aside from challenger brands, and Mark is a key part of this.”
