- Proactis, the global spend management and B2B eCommerce company, today announced that Anthony Persse has been appointed as EVP Financial Solutions.
Anthony will be leading the delivery of Proactis’ financial solutions with initial focus on its Accelerated Payment Facility. This will add further to Proactis’ existing value proposition by creating a much-needed funding solution for suppliers – providing them with a fast and easy way to realise cash when they need it and also providing multiple benefits for buyers, including a potential new revenue opportunity.
Anthony joins Proactis from Ultimate Finance where he was responsible for the delivery of Business Strategy including new product development and creation of innovative channels to market where he led the delivery of a series of market leading funding products. This included the development of the UK's fastest SME loan product and a completely unsecured funding solution to support businesses with their purchasing requirements.
Anthony said: “I’m extremely excited to join Proactis as EVP Financial Solutions during this exciting stage in its evolution. It is clear that Proactis already has three key ingredients that form the foundation of success, namely, great customers, great products and great people. The Proactis Accelerated Payment Facility
is a logical next step in delivering additional tangible benefits to both buyers and suppliers.”

He has a demonstrated history of working with financial solutions and developing financial risk strategies, many of which were centred on driving liquidity through working capital solutions. His strong business development skills will align perfectly to delivering the early roll-out and ramp up of our Accelerated Payment Facility."
