28 Apr IBN PRIVATE APPOINTS ALLAN BROWN AS DIRECTOR OF SALES
Leading private lending group IBN Private has appointed finance specialist Allan Brown to its senior leadership team as Director of Sales.
Established in 2004, IBN Private provides commercial funding solutions for property developers and business owners Australia-wide, specialising in projects valued between $2M and $200M.
The group draws on a network of 250 private funders and investors, ranging from large superannuation funds to Managed Investment Schemes.
IBN Private Chief Executive Officer, Scott Roberts, said Allan’s appointment strengthens the group’s relationship-focused service offering.
“IBN Private operates in highly specialised areas, working with accountants, brokers, bankers and pre-insolvency experts to provide a premium solution for a certain type and level of debt,” Mr Roberts said.
“Allan is highly regarded in our industry and his extensive experience, networks, and ability to deliver high-performing operating systems will enhance the way we service our referral partners and their clients.
“Importantly, we’ll be able to achieve this while preserving our trusted, old-school approach to relationships and our solutions-focused approach to lending.”
Mr Brown brings to the role more than 30 years’ experience in the financial services and banking sectors in Australia.
Prior to joining IBN Private in Queensland, he was based in Melbourne as Head of Southern Region (VIC, TAS, SA, NT and WA) for PLAN Australia. He has also held senior roles at MLC Australia and National Australia Bank.
Mr Brown said the breadth of IBN Private’s broker and lender networks presented an exciting opportunity in a dynamic segment of the financial services sector.
“This is an exciting time to be joining IBN Private as we consolidate our position as the premier private commercial funding solutions provider in Australia,” Mr Brown said.
“And the role of the non-banking sector has never been more critical.
“Complex funding solutions that traditional lenders generally shy away from – from development finance to non-conforming loans, succession planning and the challenges of commercial tax debts – are where we shine and what we’re known for.
“It’s a highly specialised and trusted space, built on relationships.”
