A cash flow finance provider has announced the appointment of a state manager to “spearhead” interstate sales growth.

Australian Invoice Finance (AIF) has announced the appointment of Chris Allchin as senior manager of its Victorian and Tasmanian operations in a bid to “spearhead sales growth” across the states.

Mr Allchin, who is based in Melbourne, has 11 years of experience in SME finance, most recently serving as business development manager at SME ender FactorONE for four years.

Commenting on the appointment, AIF managing directo Greg Charlwood said: “We’re very excited to have Chris join the AIF team. He is a passionate and driven individual who is sure to achieve great outcomes for our clients in Victoria and Tasmania.”


Mr Allchin added: “I kept a very close eye on AIF and Greg Charlwood during this time, as a new invoice financier in the market. I am looking forward to working with the AIF team and especially Greg, who is a recognised pioneer in this industry.

“I have always enjoyed working with SMEs, especially businesses in distress, because there is a level of care and understanding that’s required, which I find is not as common as it should be in the debtor finance industry. Ensuring continuity with clients before and after settlement is paramount to ensuring what you put on the table as an offering, is being followed through on.”

This is the third appointment in the past 12 months for AIF after Gary Green, senior manager for Western Australia and South Australia, was appointed in February 2018 and Drew Vautin, senior manager for Queensland, came on board in June 2018.
