Marcus Grimshaw of Fiducia Commercial Solutions has been a director of the association since 2009 and was vice chairman from 2011.
Following an election of directors at its AGM at the Westminster Park Plaza back in November 2012, Marcus was appointed as chairman at the first NACFB board meeting of the New Year held yesterday, 10 January.
Marcus Grimshaw said upon his appointment, “Having recently celebrated the NACFB’s 20th anniversary and been closely involved as a main board member in guiding the association through four years of tremendous change in our industry, I am delighted to have been voted into the chair for the next two years and I believe that during this period we will experience the defining moments on our road to recovery.
“Our main focus this year includes training and education, increasing our brand awareness and providing more benefits for our members.
“I am pleased to be able to continue to work with Adam Tyler and his team in the new London office as well as what I would describe as very strong board of directors. With this in mind I feel very confident that all our objectives will be achieved.”
Chief executive, Adam Tyler, said: “I have worked alongside Marcus and I am delighted that the board has decided to appoint him as chairman for the next two years.
“I have no doubt that 2013 will be another challenging but exciting year for the NACFB and all commercial finance brokers so it is vital that the association has a strong board to guide its members through another uncertain period.”
