Axsesstoday appoints chief executive

Axsesstoday has appointed a new chief executive following privatisation and investment from Cerberus Capital Management.

Craig Edwards will lead the company in its next phase, replacing interim chief executive Stewart Winspear.

Edwards joins from Pepper Asset Finance, where he was head of sales for over five years.

Prior to that, Edwards spent 16 years at Capital Finance Australia working his way up to head of asset finance sales.

"Craig's experience and existing relationships will add significant strength and expertise to Axsesstoday and its existing leadership team," said Daniel Dejanovic, senior managing director of Cerberus Global Investments.

"With its new partnership with Cerberus and the appointment of Craig as chief executive, Axsesstoday will be able to strengthen its business and identify strategic opportunities to expand its platform for the benefit of its customers in Australia."

Edwards said: "Axsesstoday has an exciting opportunity to deliver a compelling equipment finance proposition to the hospitality and transport industries.

"The company has a strong existing offering with the potential to launch new products, all of which can help brokers meet the evolving needs of their customers in an easy-to-use, technology-driven way.

"I believe there are opportunities to expand into other sectors of the equipment finance market and look forward to partnering with our leadership team and with Cerberus to lead this business into the future."
