Bibby Transportation Finance Marks 10 Years in Business

NASHVILLE, Tenn – Sept 20, 2016 – Employees Raise Money and Form Team for Walk to Defeat ALS

Bibby Transportation Finance (BTF) will celebrate 10 years in business this month and will commemorate the occasion at an event at the Wildhorse Saloon where employees, clients, and other attendees will participate in a raffle to raise funds for the company’s charity of choice – The ALS Association. The day after the event, a team of BTF employees along with their families, friends, and clients will participate in the Walk to Defeat ALS in memory of an employee who had the disease.

Since its launch in 2006, Bibby Transportation Finance has funded 1,500 transportation clients with recourse and non-recourse factoring and equipment financing. The company’s first decade in business saw the acquisition of transportation finance company FreightCheck and a relocation of headquarters to Nashville. Additionally, BTF has grown its employee base tenfold, from three original employees to 30 today.

Piggybacking on the success of its first 10 years, Bibby Transportation Finance will continue to focus on growth by competitively meeting customer needs with new products and services planned for the near future. In addition, the company will ramp up business development efforts with enhanced marketing and research.

"We owe our success to an exceptional team in Nashville who works relentlessly to maintain superb client relationships while also focusing on expanding our current client base,” says Ian Watson, Bibby Financial Services North America CEO. “In addition to working hard for our clients, our team demonstrates a strong commitment to community service through participation in our Giving Something Back program. Our employees dedicate hundreds of hours volunteering in the local community and raising money for charitable causes as they are currently doing for the ALS Association.”
