International Factoring Association Names Daniel New Executive Director

Date: Jan 04, 2022 @ 07:50 AM

The International Factoring Association, the world’s largest association of commercial finance companies, announced that Tania Daniel has assumed the role of Executive Director. Daniel, who has spent her entire career in the factoring industry and is also a long-standing member of the IFA’s Advisory Board, will help lead the association into its next chapter.

In making the decision last year, former Executive Director Bert Goldberg was very excited to have Daniel lead the IFA.

“Bert thought Tania was the perfect person to lead the association, and we agree.” Heather Villa, managing director of the IFA, said. “She understands the commercial finance world and has been involved in the IFA as a board member and regular attendee of IFA events for many years. With more than 20 years in the industry, she appreciates the needs of our members and the challenges they face.”

Daniel brings extensive experience in factoring and asset-based lending, with roles in executive leadership, risk and portfolio management, credit, underwriting, sales and operations. As managing director of ENGS Commercial Capital, she has grown the company from a startup to a recognized market leader that is part of Mitsubishi HC Capital group. Daniel began her career at LSQ Funding Group in Orlando, FL, and was also chief operating officer at Porter Capital in Birmingham, AL.

Daniel also serves on the board of directors of the American Factoring Association, the sole lobbying body representing the factoring industry in Washington D.C. Daniel has been a board member since November of 2019 and serves as the government relations chair of the executive committee.

“I am honored to be able to serve in a leadership role for the IFA, and I know I have big shoes to fill,” Daniel said. “The IFA has had such a positive impact on my career and the connections I have made throughout the years, and I am excited to continue what Bert created. With the support of the factoring community, I look forward to providing growth and new opportunities to our association and members in hopes of ensuring a strong and united factoring community for years to come.”

Since the passing of the Goldberg, the IFA’s founder, the association has continued with Goldberg’s mission of providing valuable education and expertise to the commercial finance industry.
