David Venables has joined working capital solutions provider Taulia as UK and Ireland account executive.

He is based in London and reports to Michael Rieskamp, European head of sales.

Venables makes the move from LiquidX, the online platform for trade finance and working capital, where he had been a director, responsible for Emea corporate client business and product development, since August 2017.

Prior to joining LiquidX, Venables worked at Lloyds Bank, Barclays and JP Morgan in a number of senior client coverage roles in the UK, Guatemala and Argentina. During his 16 years in corporate banking, he covered a wide range of industry sectors but with a focus on diversified industrials. He specialised in syndicated and bilateral debt finance, trade finance, treasury services and risk management.

“I’m delighted to have joined the team at Taulia. Exciting times ahead as we accelerate our European expansion,” Venables announced last week on LinkedIn.

Taulia is headquartered in San Francisco, with locations across the US, UK and Europe. In January it established its first physical office in Asia Pacific, appointing Jamie Whiteway to lead the new team in Sydney, Australia.
