Taulia Inc., the market leading SaaS platform for supplier financing, announced today it has appointed Nigel Taylor as Taulia’s new European Business Development Director. Taylor will be responsible for driving expansion throughout the UK and Europe.
Nigel brings over 14 years of experience in financial supply chain automation to Taulia, joining the company from GXS, where he led the marketing, business development and strategy of their eInvoicing solutions. In addition to his role at Taulia, Nigel also chairs the UK national eInvoicing forum, represents the UK at the European Commission’s forum on eInvoicing and is an executive committee member of the European eInvoicing Service Providers’ Association. Nigel is passionate about the benefits of automation for small and medium companies and works with the British government and European Commission to increase adoption of eInvoicing and supplier financing.
“We are delighted to have Nigel on board,” said Jon Keating, European Managing Director. “His expertise in the sector and understanding of Government and industry initiatives will be invaluable to us as we establish Taulia as the leader in breakthrough supplier financing and dynamic discounting.”
“I am excited to be working with the team at Taulia and I am confident that Taulia’s solutions provide real value for our customers and their supply chains,” said Nigel Taylor. “I believe that eInvoicing and supplier financing will assist economic recovery in the UK and Europe by helping large businesses release cash to their suppliers earlier.”
Taulia is expanding in the UK just as the UK Government’s programme to support the adoption of Supply Chain Finance gathers momentum. In the announcement on October 23rd 2012, Prime Minister David Cameron said: “In the current climate, viable businesses can struggle to get the finance they need to grow – this scheme will not only help them secure finance and support cash flow, but will help secure supply chains for some of our biggest companies and protect thousands of jobs. It can be a win-win, with large companies and small suppliers both benefiting from this innovative scheme.”
