  • What do you like best about working for Finance 4 Business?
  • I love the fast paced environment working on multiple deals at any given point, with no day being the same! I am lucky to work in a great team where we all work closely together to ensure we deliver on client requirements. There is no better feeling than getting an urgent deal over the line.

  • What's the best project/client work you have been involved in?
  • There are a number of projects/clients I could mention but there are a couple of clients I have dealt with from when I joined F4B. It has been great to help them along the way and see them grow and take on larger projects over the years.

  • What are the values that drive you?
  • Honesty, hard work and positive attitude. I am a glass half full type of person.

  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
  • Most weekends I enjoy hacking a golf ball round my local course or watching the mighty Aston Villa. I also enjoy the odd pint or two with family and friends.

  • If you hosted a dinner party, what would you cook and who would you invite?
  • I should cook more as I do really enjoy it (just not the cleaning up after part). My current signature dish is chicken, chorizo and prawn jambalaya which always goes down well. I would invite anyone who would be comfortable eating my cooking!

  • What’s your guilty pleasure?
  • Much to my fiancés’ annoyance I love a tin of cold soup or beans! A bad habit I picked up whilst at university to save time and not have to wash up!

  • If you had to sing a karaoke song what would it be and why?
  • I wouldn’t wish my dulcet tones and awful voice on my worst enemy so you wouldn’t catch me singing karaoke!

  • What’s your most listened to music track?
  • I wouldn’t say I have a particular track I listen to, when it comes to music I will listen to all sorts depending on the mood.

  • What is your favourite moment with the Finance 4 Business team?
  • There are a number of moments I could pick out but the main two would be completing my first ever deal which was a commercial mortgage against a pub or last year when I was promoted to become Head of Bridging & Development.
