Tom joined Cambridge & Counties Bank in 2015 as Director of Credit, growing the department before moving to help launch Specialist Car Finance. Tom has a lifelong passion for cars that was passed down from his dad who attended F1 races with the likes of Jim Clark & Juan Manual Fangio and his desire for cars has continued. Ignoring cost and any sense of practicality, Tom would love a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 or a late model Bentley Azure class.
