Panel and asset management software and analytics specialist Qualco has appointed Richard (Dicky) Davies as Business Development advisor.

Davies joins Qualco with a wealth of experience in both the management and growth of major consumer finance portfolios in the UK financial services sector. He previously held senior business development positions in Barclaycard and Visa Europe, and was most recently a member of Lowell Group’s executive board where he was business development director, responsible for managing client relationships for both the debt purchase and contingent collections parts of the business.

In his new advisory role for Qualco, Davies will work alongside Managing Director Christian Jacob, and Head of Sales Jan-Michael Lacey to build upon the recent success in client acquisition.

Christian Jacob said “I am delighted to welcome Dicky to the team, an accomplished commercial director who is not only a familiar face to many of us in the UK office, but is also well respected and liked across the industry. I am sure he will play an important part in achieving our growth ambitions for the future and I am confident he will add significant value to the business.”
