Bibby Financial Services (BFS) has recruited Lisa Peters as business development manager (BDM) and Stuart Lee as business development executive for the South of England.
Peters joins BFS with over 15 years’ of experience in the invoice financing industry. Prior to BFS, she was a BDM at HSBC for over four years, responsible for providing funding solutions for existing clients, as well as seeking opportunities with prospective clients.
In her new role at BFS, she will look after small business clients in Surrey and North Sussex, including Redhill, Crawley, Horsham and Brighton.
Peters said: “After 15 years at HSBC Invoice Finance, I was keen to explore other opportunities in the growing independent market. Not only is BFS a market leader in terms of funding SMEs through the strong relationships it builds with clients and intermediaries, it is also a fantastic place to work.
“I’m delighted to join BFS at a time where we are growing our presence in the UK and look forward to working with local businesses and intermediaries alike.”
Lisa will be based from the Redhill offices in Surrey which opened in March 2015.
Meanwhile, Stuart Lee joins the Southern team following roles at Dollar Finance and Reed Business Information.
Nick Carter, head of sales for Bibby Financial Services’ Southern sales team, said: “Lisa is a highly skilled financing expert, who has worked on both sides of the fence – both on the operational side delivering training to credit controllers and on the sales side serving UK businesses. With her extensive experience of offering tailored cashflow advice to businesses, strong intermediary connections and customer-focused values, she is a natural fit with the Bibby ethos.
“We are always on the lookout for new talent, and pride ourselves on investing in young professionals who show excellent potential in the financial services sector. Stuart has shown this already and we are very much looking forward to watching him further develop into his new role.”
