Commercial finance broker trade body appoints new chairman

The National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers has appointed Kevin Jones as its new chairman for 2011 and 2012.

Jones has been a director of the association since 2005 and has been deputy chairman since 2009.

He is also managing director of Omega Commercial Solutions.

He says: “Our main focus this year includes training and education, member benefits and increasing the membership and patronage. I am pleased to be able to continue to work with Adam Tyler and his team in Exeter as well as what I would describe as very strong board of directors. With this in mind I feel very confident that these objectives will be achieved.”

Chief executive Adam Tyler says: “2011 will no doubt be another challenging year for the NACFB and commercial finance brokers, so it is vital that the association has a strong board to guide its members through this difficult period.”
