Bio

My career started at Lloyds bank, joining straight from school. 24 years of continual service, 10 of these being in the commercial property sector, it was time to explore other opportunities.

With my depth of knowledge and experience, I joined Finance 4 Business in 2014. Initially to set up the Commercial Mortgage Desk and package complex Bridging arrangements, I quickly established a lucrative division of the company. I was promoted to Director (Mortgages), joining the Senior Management Team in the process. Now we are expanding the division and looking to increase revenue further.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, holidays and sport.
