Nigel Taylor Joins Taulia as European Business Development Director
I was delighted when I heard a few weeks ago the news that was made official this week that Nigel Taylor has joined Taulia. It’s great news for Nigel and great news for Taulia.
Nigel moves from GXS where he led the marketing, business development and strategy of their eInvoicing solutions but I got to know him through his chairmanship of the UK National e-invoicing Forum. He’s won a great deal of respect in that chair role where he’s been able to steer the delivery of some excellent thought leadership from the group. He also represents the UK at the European Commission’s forum on eInvoicing and is an executive committee member of the European eInvoicing Service Providers’ Association.
Commenting on the appointment, Jon Keating, Taulia’s European Managing Director said “We are delighted to have Nigel on board. 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.”
