Peer-to-peer invoice financier, The Invoice Market (tim) has expanded its executive team with the appointment of a new head of national sales and referral partnerships.
Bernie Kelly will take up the role, moving on from his previous position as managing director, international operations for PolicyLink.
The CEO of tim, Angus Sedgwick said Kelly has considerable experience in invoice financing.
“Interestingly, he was involved in invoice discounting, now known as peer-to-peer financing as early as 2008 whilst working in South Africa and the UK,” Sedgwick said.
“Recently he has worked with tim in a consulting capacity managing deal flow, referral partner relationships, and the transformation of tim’s internet presence and brand.”
Kelly said his main task will be to grow tim’s distribution and deal flow.
“Since commencing in March as a consultant, I’ve doubled the volume of new business enquiries, which has contributed to a significant growth our invoice funding levels.
“But I truly believe we’ve just scratched the surface. As the awareness of alternative financing and demand for it continues to grow over the future years, tim will be seen as both a pioneer in this market and a reputable business domestically and internationally.”
