Business Finance provider Accelerated Payments hires Chan Virk as UK Sales Director for the Midlands

Working capital provider Accelerated Payments today announced the appointment of Chan Virk as Regional Director for the Midlands.  A highly experienced banking professional, Chan will be responsible for the continued growth of Accelerated Payments’ in the Midlands, supporting the Debt Advisory, Broker and Private Equity communities.

With a career spanning over 20 years in Commercial Banking and Finance, Chan has built a solid reputation for delivering working capital solutions and excellent customer service.

Welcoming the appointment, Ian Duffy, CEO of Accelerated Payments said, “We are thrilled to welcome Chan to our UK team as we ramp up our growth efforts in the Midlands – a region that has an abundance of scalable companies who need access to dynamic working capital solutions. A highly motivated and dedicated banking professional, Chan’s passion to support local businesses and his in-depth knowledge of the region, makes him an ideal candidate to help us to continue to make significant inroads in the Midlands.

“I am looking forward to working with an impactful fintech company that is aligned with my belief that customer service is everything,” said Chan Virk. “This is a difficult time for many businesses in the UK seeking liquidity post-Brexit, with macroeconomic conditions such as soaring energy bills, rising inflation and interest rates adding to the complexities of growing a company. More than ever, there’s a demand for FinTechs like Accelerated Payments to step up and help businesses overcome the challenges of cash flow management.”

Chan added, “I am delighted to join this fast growing global company and look forward to spreading the word about what we can do to help businesses better manage their liquidity while also building long lasting relationships with my clients, leading with empathy in all that I do as Sales Director for the Midlands.”

Set up in 2017, Accelerated Payments set out to solve the problem of cash flow for businesses through a flexible and innovative invoice finance service. The process is simple to use – global companies that need working capital can access the fintech’s client portal and upload and select invoices they need for funding. Once approved, payment is advanced, usually within 24 hours.
