The International Factoring Association (IFA) recently announced the election of four new members to its advisory board including Steven Hausman of Advance Business Capital.

Board members serve two-year terms, shape the association’s strategy and initiatives, and help fulfill the IFA’s mission to assist the factoring community by providing information, training, purchasing power and a resource for the factoring community.

“I am honored to join the IFA’s advisory board. The growth of the IFA as an organization has been remarkable”, Hausman said. “In addition to an outstanding leader in Bert Goldberg, the association has thrived from terrific leadership within the industry. I am excited to share in the opportunity of giving back to an organization and industry that has meant so much to Advance Business Capital.”
