Bibby Financial Services Announces Strategic Sales Organizational Changes

August 24, 2017

Bibby Financial Services (BFS) has announced strategic organizational changes to its US sales team to support continued business growth and create greater synergies across its Asset Based Lending, Factoring and Transportation Finance offerings. Daniel Rodrigue, who rejoined BFS in April 2017 as National Head of Sales for Factoring and Transportation Finance, is now National Head of Sales overseeing all three business segment sales teams. Rodrigue will continue reporting directly to Ian Watson, CEO of Bibby Financial Services in North America.

Additional appointments include: 

  • BFS veterans Blake Kennedy and Brian Albach have been promoted to newly created roles as Regional Sales Managers for the Southeast and Midwest, respectively, reporting to Rodrigue.
  • More business development officers have been appointed to the existing sales team to increase regional presence throughout the U.S.: Northeast (Pennsylvania), Midwest (Illinois and Texas), South (Alabama and Georgia), and West (California).  The business development officers for Southeast and Midwest will report to Kennedy and Albach, their respective Regional Sales Managers. 

These appointments boost our sales teams, support our business strategy and strengthen our proposition in the alternative finance market,” said Ian Watson. “BFS is making significant strides across all business lines with new client funding up 60% in the second quarter and client retention rates at an all-time high. This new sales structure will ensure that we are able to maintain and build on that momentum with a strong integrated sales team dedicated to the success of our clients and delivering the financial solutions they need.”
