Bibby Financial Services (BFS) has moved its global headquarters to a base in Oxfordshire, to accommodate its growth plans.

The SME funder relocated central support teams to Pembroke House in Banbury Business Park, which was formerly a Vodafone office.

The group funds more than 10,000 businesses worldwide, and has 1,200 employees based in its more than 40 offices spread between Europe, North America, and Asia.

The 17,000 square foot premises will house over 200 employees in departments which include human resources, IT services, and finance, among others.

David Postings, global chief executive of Bibby Financial Services, said: “Our move to larger premises reflects this expansion and our ambitious growth plans over the coming years.

“Having our central support teams together allows our internal network to work more closely, enabling us to better support staff and clients alike.”
