IGF, the leading commercial finance provider for SMEs, is continuing its hiring run with a trio of hires across the UK: Kelly Tighe joins as Client Manager on the firm’s Invoice Finance team; Aman Gill is Regional Sales Director, also on the Invoice Finance team; Mark Stainsby joins IGF Business Credit, the firm’s asset based lending arm, as Client Manager.  

Joining the firm from Bibby Financial Services, Kelly Tighe will be responsible for managing IGF’s Invoice Finance clients across the north of England. She will be based out of the firm’s new North West office in Manchester. Tighe’s previous roles also include positions with Davenham Trade Finance and RBS.

Responsible for growing IGF’s Invoice Finance presence in the Midlands, Gill also joins from Bibby Financial Services, where he was a Technical Manager on the Trade & International Finance team for just over a year.

On the Business Credit side of the business, Stainsby joins as Client Manager, based out of IGF’s headquarters in Paddock Wood, Kent. He joins IGF with over 26 years of industry experience, following various roles across the trade finance sector with Lloyds Bank, GE, and most recently, property finance firm Wellesley Finance.

Aman Gill, Regional Sales Director – IGF Invoice Finance, comments: “IGF is currently undergoing a huge growth phase, not only geographically, but also in terms of its products and services offered. This an exciting time for the business, and I’m looking forward to building on its presence in the Midlands region.”

Kelly Tighe, Client Manager – IGF Invoice Finance, comments: "I agree with everything IGF stands for in terms of quality and going the extra mile to help customers. Manchester is an enterprise hub and offers IGF a great opportunity to be based amongst SMEs that are thriving across the region.”

Mark Stainsby, Client Manager – IGF Business Credit, comments: “With a wealth of experience behind me, I’m looking forward to bringing this expertise to IGF’s asset based lending portfolio. It’s undoubtedly an exciting time to join the firm, and I’m confident that IGF’s management team will take the business to new heights.”
