Onguard, the FinTech company that offers a platform which streamlines the entire order-to-cash process, has announced the appointment of Colin Sanders as senior business executive as it continues to invest in its UK growth strategy. 

Colin’s appointment comes after a successful year at Onguard which saw record sales which has continued into 2019. Thanks to this continued success, investing back into the company is high on Onguard’s agenda for 2019.

As senior business executive, Colin will be responsible for new business and company promotion in order to expand Onguard’s presence in the UK and replicate success it has seen in the Netherlands and across Europe.

With more than 30 years’ of experience including in the banking industry, Colin has held a number of positions within financial institutions and the private sector, such as credit controller and credit manager positions, as well as roles within credit reference. This includes 14 years working at Graydon in head of intelligence and head of UK operations roles after the organisation acquired his own bespoke company. 

As many companies are still using outdated systems and documents for credit management, Colin will also be tasked with the challenge of bringing credit management into the 21st century and promoting the rapid growth of technology. 

Bert Van Der Zwan, CEO, Onguard said: “Last year was an excellent year for Onguard and so far, 2019 is proving to be just as promising. So far, we’re off to a flying start and the appointment of Colin will help to cement this. At the moment, we have around 800 large customers using our tool with users in more than fifty countries. With Colin’s input we hope to increase our presence in the UK and become the market leader in Europe.” 

Colin Sanders, senior business executive Onguard added: “I’m very excited to return to credit management, particularly as I’ve always been interested in technology and the way it can innovate the credit industry, which is typically held back by legacy systems. I’ve long been passionate about the technology that Onguard provides and with what the team has created, so I am looking forward to playing a part in boosting its profile within the UK.”
