Bill Elliott was named president of First Business Growth Funding. First Business Financial Services recently changed its name for its account receivable financing business from First Business Factors to First Business Growth Funding.

“First Business Growth Funding better reflects how we assist business owners by shortening our clients’ cash flow cycle, smoothing out their operating finances and allowing them to grow,” Elliott says. “There’s an increasing demand as many buyers extend their accounts payable terms — it’s often difficult for vendors to meet the financial demands of payroll and inventory purchases when they aren’t paid consistently in a timely manner.”
