A cash flow finance provider has appointed a new business development manager to help drive its expansion in the Australian market.

Australian Invoice Finance (AIF) has appointed Drew Vautin to the role of business development manager, Queensland, effective immediately.

AIF has noted that Mr Vautin was appointed to set up the company’s Queensland operations and spearhead growth across the state.

Mr Vautin most recently served as business development manager at Scottish Pacific from May 2017 to May 2018, after also serving as manager of bad debt protection.


Prior to joining Scottish Pacific, AIF’s new Brisbane-based appointee served as business development manager at debtor finance company FactorONE from May 2015 to June 2016.

Mr Vautin joins AIF managing director Greg Charlwood; senior manager NSW Matthew Erwin; and senior manager WA and SA Gary Green.

Mr Charlwood welcomed Mr Vautin’s appointment and said that he believes the appointee is well placed to perform his new role.

“Drew’s wealth of experience in dealing with SMEs across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia will be invaluable to the growth strategy of Australian Invoice Finance,” the MD said.

“He has proven himself as an accomplished leader in the cash flow finance industry and built successful teams from scratch.”
