Bibby Financial Services Adds Gunther as BDO in New York Region

Bibby Financial Services announced that Eric Gunther has joined its sales team as business development officer. In this role, Gunther will focus on New York City and the surrounding region. He will report directly to Nick Hart, managing director.

Gunther comes to BFS from Equinox where he held management positions and opened new markets. Prior to that, he worked as an Independent Premium Apparel Brand Manager for four years responsible for growing sales and developing marketing plans for popular apparel brands. His experience also includes financial advisor at UBS Financial Services. He began his career as the owner and general manager of Eric’s, a luxury retail store in New Jersey.

“We are happy to have someone with Eric’s background join our team,” said Hart. “Not only is he an experienced manager, but he is also well-versed in the apparel industry. With the addition of Eric’s role in the key apparel market of New York City, we look to reach more small- to medium-sized companies and help them grow through our flexible financing options.”

Apparel is one of the key sectors that benefits from factoring, or accounts receivables finance. Bibby Financial Services often tailors its solutions by providing export factoring and purchase order financing facilities, which can be very helpful for apparel companies.
