Association confirms 2019 Board of Directors

Following a voting process to appoint a new Board for 2019, via an online EGM, the NACFB received sufficient votes to be quorate.

It can therefore be confirmed that the following Members have been appointed as Board Directors:


  • Mike Deacon – Asset Based Finance & Leasing

  • Mike Geddes – Asset Finance Solutions (UK)

  • Phil Gray – Watts Commercial Finance

  • Steve Olejnik – Mortgages for Business

  • David Sampson – Omega Commercial Solutions

  • Geoff Wilson – White Rose Finance Group


At the AGM in November, Members voted to retain Paul Goodman and Adrian Coles as Chair and Vice Chair to ensure continuity whilst the new Board is established.

The Association have also filled the Specialist Director roles with the appointment of Russ Lewis and David Newborough, whilst Martine Catton (Catalyst Business Finance) and Dave Furnival (NatWest) complete the line-up as Patron Directors.

Ralph Black, Ray Wells, Robert Collins, Alan Ellison and Graham Hill have stepped down from their roles as Directors. The Association is grateful for their enthusiasm, dedication and insight that helped drive the NACFB forward and we wish them every success in the future.
