With previous experience as a commercial finance broker, I’ve been sourcing financial solutions for clients since 2015. With a wealth of market knowledge in Asset Finance as well as Real Estate lending, I enjoy building relationships and delivering exceptional customer service, I spent the first 15 years of my career in London, leading a sales team for a Norwegian Satellite Operator, travelling Europe as a highly successful Business Development manager. I settled back into Yorkshire in 2015, the county where I was born, when my skills were transferred into the financial services industry. Outside of work, I love nothing more than a day at the seaside with my family or travelling to warmer beaches whenever the opportunity arises.
