Bibby names new head of operations for construction finance

Bibby Financial Services (BFS) has appointed Alberto Argentieri (pictured above) as its new head of operations for construction finance for central and south England.

Alberto has joined from Skipton Business Finance, where he spent the past three-and-a-half years heading up its Midlands office.

He brings 16 years of experience in financial services operations, having previously worked at HSBC as a corporate client director.

Alberto said: “I’m delighted to join BFS, particularly at this critical time for the construction sector.

“The sector has been hit by declining orders, skills shortages and some instability following the collapse of Carillion in 2018, so it’s now more important than ever that we provide subcontracting businesses with the support they need. 

“As a funder providing specialist funding for the sector for 15 years, we’re best placed to support these businesses to grow in 2019 and beyond.”

Deborah Johnson, commercial director for the North at BFS, added: “As a relationship-based funder, we’re committed to delivering outstanding services to our clients. 

“We’re delighted to welcome Alberto to BFS, who brings a wealth of experience to our construction finance team as we enter our next stage of growth.”
