5. Testimonials

'Michael, thank you for many, many years of fruitful cooperation! I believe that our very first meeting was long, long ago in a hotel in London, a very traditional hotel with lots of leather and wood panelling. I believe it was the Durrants Hotel in George   Street. It must have been a good meeting and an important moment for the factoring industry.’

Jeroen Kohnstamm, Secretary General, Factors Chain International, on his retirement; to Michael Bickers, Managing Director, BCR Publishing.
