With BPL New York LLC now established as one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, BPL Global – the leading CPRI broker – is delighted to announce the appointment of Gabe Mansky and Andrea Friedman. Mansky and Friedman, who both join BPL New York from Arthur J. Gallagher, will be primarily focused on Israeli-based corporations and banks, as well as their US affiliates.

A well-known CPRI broker in both the US and Israeli markets, Mansky held the position of Executive Vice President at Gallagher for 12 years. He previously spent 11 years at Acordia/Wells Fargo Insurance and began his career in CPRI with Credit International Associates, now Aon Trade Credit.

Friedman was a member of Mansky’s team for two and a half years at Wells Fargo and at Gallagher for the past 12 years, where she served as a Client Relationship Manager. She will continue to work as a Client Relationship Manager within Mansky’s team at BPL Global.

BPL Global has also announced the signing of a partnership with TCS – Trade Credit Solutions. TCS, the first and leading brokerage firm exclusively focusing on Israeli trade credit and political risks, was founded in 2010 by Muki Sharir. The TCS team has gained the reputation as the premier CPRI broker in Israel, providing tailored solutions to its clients – banks and financial institutions, leading global corporates and multinationals with subsidiaries around the globe, as well as public and private corporates, exporters, and domestic market players.

James Esdaile, Managing Director, BPL Global, said: “We’re excited to add such experienced talent to the BPL Global team in New York and equally pleased to enter into a partnership with TCS, which will allow us to support and develop its well-established franchise in Israel.”

Mansky said: “Joining BPL Global, continuing the partnership with TCS, and focusing on
the Israeli marketplace culminates in a winning combination. BPL Global’s position as the world’s leading CPRI broker, the reputation of TCS as the premier CPRI broker in Israel, and Israel’s exporting economy all make this so. That said, we will not forgo any non-Israeli opportunity.”

Muki Sharir, Founder, TCS said: “We are delighted to partner with BPL Global, a specialist CPRI broker which shares our commitment to providing the industry’s highest level of product expertise and client service. The partnership will allow us to further strengthen our capabilities and lead the Israeli CPRI brokerage industry.”
