Independent Growth Finance (IGF), the independent asset-based lender, has expanded its presence in the North of England, with the appointment of John Savage as ABL director.
Based in Leeds, John joins IGF with a focus on origination across Yorkshire and the North East. John brings with him over 25 years’ experience in the ABL industry, previously working at GE Capital for 12 years in both their Commercial and Corporate ABL teams before holding senior ABL sales roles at ABL players, most recently Close Bros.
With wide ranging experience in structuring and delivering complex ABL transactions, John will have a particular focus on supporting introducers and borrowers seeking finance for event driven transactions such as MBOs or MBIs, acquisitions, refinance, and funding for turnarounds.
John Savage, ABL director, said: “I’m thrilled to join the IGF team, and to build upon our fantastic reputation for delivering deals with certainty across Yorkshire and the North East. With my strong experience delivering funding solutions for complex transactions involving the full range of ABL assets, I look forward to helping borrowers maximise both the quantum and flexibility of their ABL funding package.”
