2016 Year End Message from CEO Ian Watson
Ian Watson – CEO for Bibby Financial Services North America
Thank you for all of your support in 2016. I wanted to give you an update on what is going to happen in 2017. In 2016, we have worked hard to clarify our business proposition here and in Canada. We have segmented our business into three different sections: Bibby factoring, Bibby Transportation and Bibby asset based lending. The design behind this is so we can support small businesses at all levels throughout their growth life cycle.
During the course of the year, we have added some members to our team. We’ve added in Chicago Brian Albach and Jim Vargo. In California, we have added Brian Maloney. Here in Atlanta we have added Jeff Mitchell and David Zimmerman. Ivan Cook has returned to our transportation team in Nashville, TN. Dan Millar has returned to us again in Canada to support our offices there. In 2017, you can expect more additions across all of the regional teams in our North American market.
To achieve our goals, we need the support of our Introducers/Referrers and our clients. To do that, we need to maintain high standards of service and excellent levels of responsiveness. This is a priority for us now and you will see us continue to prioritize both responsiveness and standards of service during 2017. You can expect our local teams to continue to reach out to you and build on the relationship we have together and build on the local support that you need.
Finally, thank you for your support in 2016 and we look forward to working together in 2017! Have a happy holiday and a happy New Year!
