She later progressed into the role of Business Development Manager until moving to a post with AIB Commercial Finance in 2015.

Bibby Financial Services Ireland is part of Bibby Financial Services Group, an independent financial services partner to over 10,000 businesses across 13 countries. The Irish operation was established in 2006 and has an expert team of 30 employees based in Sandyford, Dublin.
Mark O’Rourke, Head of Business at Bibby Financial Services Ireland, says: “We’re delighted with Elizabeth’s appointment as our new Head of Sales. Elizabeth originally began working with Bibby when the Irish branch was founded in 2006 and her experience means she is well placed to oversee activity in assisting Irish SME’s with invoice financing solutions. Her positive attitude and resourcefulness make her an invaluable part of the Bibby team.”
Elizabeth Bradley, Head of Sales at Bibby Financial Services, says: “Irish SME’s continue to face upheaval in the Irish and international markets. Many SME’s still turn to the more traditional lending options when they want to improve cashflow, unaware there are numerous other funding solutions available which may be more suitable. As Head of Sales, I’ll be working with the team to ensure we educate SME’s who may not have considered invoice finance before about the options available to them.”
