Sanders said: ‘I am delighted to be taking igroup forward at this exciting time in our history. Joining GE Capital was a significant milestone for us and has allowed us to access top quality systems and customer centricity. With the direction of GE’s values, I am confident igroup can embrace market opportunities to ensure continued and sustained growth while meeting the needs of customers.’
