Specialist financier Falcon Group has appointed Steve Box, former Bibby Financial Services’ CEO and HSBC veteran, as head of business development for the UK and Europe.
Box will be responsible for leading Falcon’s expansion in the UK and European markets and brings more than 38 years of experience in financial services – in particular, receivables, asset-based lending, supply chain finance and trade finance.
Will Nagle, CEO of Falcon Group, said: “Having established ourselves as a leading global player in trade finance, we are always looking for new ways to evolve our business and support our clients in new markets.
“Steve’s track record of developing teams, growing top-line revenue and boosting company profitability, combined with his knowledge of the corporate landscape – in the UK and beyond – along with his unparalleled experience in both banking and non-bank institutions, will help us achieve this goal. We’re thrilled to have him onboard.”
Falcon's core message to customers is that "we start where the banks stop and contribute to funding the real economy".
Box said: “It is precisely this approach – going beyond the banks to provide corporates with tailored flexible solutions – which I am very much looking forward to developing and strengthening. It is such a great privilege to join Falcon, a company with a fantastic track record of expanding into new markets and a great culture.”
