Debt Rescue breaks away from Lanyana Financial Group

13th July, 2015No Comments

One of Debt Rescue’s founding directors, Craig Francis, has resigned from his position as Managing Director as the company separates from the Lanyana Financial Group.

In the midst of a company restructure, Debt Rescue, and its associated debt agreement administration company, Insolvency Administration Services has separated from Lanyana Financial Group and are now operating independently as part of the George Baxter Group.

Mr Francis will remain managing director of Lanyana Financial Group and oversee the operations of its associated companies including Debtstroyer, Debtware, Positive Solutions Finance, Positive Solutions Planning and Save On Bills.

Over the past 10 years, Mr Francis has been instrumental in identifying, exploring and exploiting ideas by seeking more efficient and effective ways of conducting business, whether through process improvements or recognising gaps in the marketplace.

Mr Francis will continue to be integral in the strategic development of Lanyana Financial Group as the company moves to promote its own unique debt relief services and custom designed debt agreement administration software.

The George Baxter Group hopes to continue the success of Debt Rescue as one of Australia’s most trusted Debt Relief Solution Providers and has appointed new Chief Executive Office, Shane Edwards to provide direction and leadership.

With over 20 years experience in finance and commercial roles and expertise in data-driven, long-term strategic planning, Mr Edwards will be a welcome addition to George Baxter Group.

Mr Edwards started his career as a Chartered Accountant in Audit and Business Services and transitioned onto commercial roles within the management rights sector, government (Queensland Treasury Corporation), private banking, the resource sector and most recently as a Chief Financial Officer in the renewable energy sector.

Mr Edwards holds a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting and Finance, is a Chartered Accountant, has completed a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment majoring in Wealth Management and is also a qualified project manager.

In this position, Mr Edwards hopes to increase the market share held by Debt Rescue while maintaining a client centric focus.

While the George Baxter Group and Lanyana Financial Group are now operating independently of each other, Debt Rescue hopes to remain an affiliate partner of Debtstroyer and Positive Solutions Finance.
