Evans Named WorldBusiness Capital Senior Advisor
Anne Evans, CEO of Connecticut-based Universal Strategies Ltd. and former Director at the U.S. Department of Commerce International Trade Administration, has been appointed senior advisor at Hartford’s domestic and international commercial lending institution, WorldBusiness Capital Inc.
Evans, a third generation tire dealer with more than 40 years of experience in the U.S. and global marketplace in senior government and private sector business and trade positions, will provide market strategy and operations advisory services to WBC.
“With WBC’s enhanced focus on offering creative long-term lending products for the manufacturing and industrial sectors, particularly in the area of advanced manufacturing technology, Anne’s substantial business network and her strong background in domestic and international manufacturing and marketing will be a great asset to WorldBusiness Capital and our manufacturing client base," says WBC CEO Brett Silvers.
"As a businessperson who grew her own manufacturing companies in the United States and overseas, and then as a senior government economic development official, Anne appreciates how long-term debt financing made available to this sector with attractive terms and conditions will support the growth of U.S. and overseas companies."
Evans was quoted in MTD Editor Mike Manges' March 2021 editorial about sustainability.
