Australian Invoice Finance has appointed a new manager to its Victorian and Tasmanian markets as it seeks to challenge the dominant players in the cashflow finance sector.
Chris Allchin has been hired by AIF to be a senior manager to help set up and spearhead sales in its Victorian and Tasmanian operations.
Mr Allchin comes from FactorONE where he was a business development manager for over four years, focusing on management of broker relationships and leads in Victoria.
Mr Allchin said he had been keeping a close eye on AIR and was looking forward to working with the team.
“I am looking forward to working with the AIF team and especially Greg, who is a recognised pioneer in this industry.
“I have always enjoyed working with SMEs, especially businesses in distress, because there is a level of care and understanding that’s required, which I find is not as common as it should be in the debtor finance industry,” he said.
AIF managing director Greg Charlwood said he was excited to have Mr Allchin join the team.
“We’re very excited to have Chris join the AIF team. He is a passionate and driven individual who is sure to achieve great outcomes for our clients in Victoria and Tasmania.”
This is the third appointment of the year for AIF who appointed Gary Green as senior manager for Western Australia and South Australia in February and Drew Vautin in the same role for Queensland.
