Crossflow co-founder to tackle finance issues at Summit

Crossflow’s Tony Duggan will take to the stage at this year’s Supply Chain Finance Summit, to discuss how to connect business with alternative sources of finance, such as reverse and factoring schemes.

The brand new event is taking place on 3 December at the Radisson Blu Portman hotel in London. It will explore the finance issues currently vital to industry decision makers.

Duggan will use the event as an opportunity to also discuss automated transactions, from invoice processing to approval and settlement, and hopes to tackle the issue of supply finance by providing an explanation of the solutions available on today’s market.

Current chief executive officer and co-founder of Crossflow Payments, Duggan has previously held roles within the industry, such as supply chain development director at Wickes, and consulting services director at Bolero, a division of the SWIFT banking network.

He joins Network Rail’s Jim Carter, who will present a case study on implementation of the company’s supply chain finance scheme at the summit.

Carter will also discuss challenges of stakeholder engagement, technology options, decision making process, feedback from the project and how Network Rail dealt with the difficulties.

David Loseby, Arriva’s director of procurement for Mainland Europe, will be on hand to provide an exclusive look at how the company approaches supply chain finance on the day.

Loseby has been developing and implementing a new strategy and organisation for Arriva, to deliver benefits across all geographies, develop a new supply chain and suite of contracts to support a turnover of £5 billion plus.

The Supply Chain Finance Summit is organised by Supply Chain Standard.
