BFS Capital Appoints Ken Murray as Chief Marketing Officer

| By:


BFS Capital (“BFS”), a leading technology-enabled small business financing platform, announced today that it has appointed Ken Murray as its chief marketing officer. Mr. Murray is responsible for customer acquisition and loyalty marketing efforts to drive growth for BFS Capital, including demand generation, communications, marketing analytics, digital, channel development and brand management. With more than 25 years of leadership experience in financial services, Mr. Murray is a recognized thought leader in marketing execution and digital transformation.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Ken aboard to lead our marketing efforts,” said Marc Glazer, CEO and co-founder of BFS. “Ken’s vast knowledge of the entire marketing landscape, digital marketing, customer experience and other strategic skillsets will play an integral role in our next phase of growth. Our mission continues to be focused on responsibly serving small businesses and with the addition of Ken, we fully intend to drive this momentum further into 2016 and beyond.”

BFS is focused on moving forward with the transformation that began in 2015. In July, the company hit the $1 billion milestone in total financings to small businesses and in September the organization rebranded with a new logo, website and name change.

“I’m truly excited for this opportunity to help guide a brand that is an industry leader,” said Mr. Murray. “I’ll be focused on applying my knowledge to the BFS market and on growing the company’s relationships with business owners, investors and industry partners.”
