Asset finance consulting and services company Invigors (Europe, Middle East and Asia) has hired Kieran O’Brien as an associate.

O’Brien has over 25 years’ experience in captive and vendor finance, and joined the European arm of the Alta Group from Cisco Capital EMEAR, where he spent 15 years, and developed captive infrastructure in over 20 countries.

Based out of Dublin, O’Brien’s role of associate will see him take responsibility for Invigors’ vendor and captive finance team in Europe, and guide it into Ireland’s leasing and asset finance market.

Citing the technology challenges of big data and the threat posed by economic and political upheaval, O’Brien suggested that he aimed to help Ivigors’ clients meet them.

O’Brien said: “I am delighted to be joining the Invigors team. I am looking forward to helping our clients to maximise the opportunities presented by those challenges as their business models evolve to meet the changing markets in Europe and elsewhere.”

Chris Boobyer, senior partner at Invigors, said: “We are delighted that he is joining the team and believe that he will add strength and depth to our existing capabilities here in EMEA and the wider Alta Group.”
