Global debtor finance specialist Bibby has appointed a new state manager for NSW and ACT.
Brendan Green will be responsible for driving growth in the largest economy in the country.
Mr Green has 31 years' experience in the banking and finance industry, having previously held senior commercial banking roles including head of cash flow finance at St George Bank between 2006 and 2010 and national sales and marketing manager at Scottish Pacific for five years.
Mr Green is also the past chair and deputy chair of the Institute for Factors and Discounters of Australia and New Zealand, now known as the Debtor and Invoice Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand.
Mark Cleaver, managing director of Bibby Financial Services Australia and New Zealand, said Mr Green’s appointment comes at a pivotal time for the group.
“Bibby has grown its lending support in the order of 15 per cent over the last year to record levels, and Brendan’s appointment to state manager NSW/ACT not only recognises his significant contribution to Bibby’s success story in NSW, but also his leadership and strategic acumen in the banking and finance areas,” he said.
Mr Green said Bibby is committed to an ambitious NSW/ACT growth strategy into 2016 and beyond.
“We have built exceptional business development and client service teams in NSW and, having been with Bibby for three years, what excites me is Bibby’s genuine appetite to write business, its flexibility to accommodate clients’ needs and its responsiveness,” he said.
Mr Green’s appointment comes after Allan Howe was appointed state manager for Queensland last year.
