Bibby Financial Services Ireland (BFSI), a leading provider of financial support and funding solutions to Irish SME’s, has appointed Sean Dolan as Business Development Manager.
In his new role, Sean will be responsible for running Bibby’s sales operations for Ulster and the border region helping businesses to thrive and grow in domestic and international markets by providing bespoke financial assistance and a wide range of specialist and working capital funding options. The company’s funding portfolio includes invoice discounting, factoring, export finance, foreign exchange services and specialist funding for a range of sectors.
Sean has been working in Business Development in Northern Ireland for over twenty years. His most recent position was as Senior Business Manager with Bank of Ireland in Omagh, Co. Tyrone, a role he held for over three years and which provided key insights into economic landscape of Northern Ireland.
Sean has also worked in a number of senior business management roles with Ulster Bank and Close Invoice Finance. He holds an MBA from the University of Ulster.
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: “As our Business Development Manager for Ulster and the border region, Sean will be tasked with ensuring regional vibrant SME’s are fully aware that invoice financing will allow them to focus on growth and expansion opportunities, without having to worry about cash flow while doing so. His initiative and can-do attitude are clear to see, and, coupled with his unrivalled industry knowledge, goes a long way in supporting our strategy not just in Ulster, but across the island of Ireland as well.”
Sean Dolan, Business Development Manager at Bibby Financial Services says: “SME’s are facing a time of increased uncertainty, predominantly caused by a number of external factors including Brexit. I’m looking forward to working with companies across Ulster and the border regions, supporting them in consolidating or maybe even expanding their businesses. Many SME’s are not fully aware of the myriad of funding options available even though many funding solutions, including invoice financing, are far more suited to their needs than traditional lending options.”
