Name three words that describe you
I will have to ask my wife on a good day. I’m hoping she would say: relaxed, energetic, & fun!
What do you do at Mulberry Asset Finance?
I work with all our customers on an ongoing basis to help them access the most competitive asset finance. I liaise closely with a fantastic panel of highly reputable funders who are keen to assist SME's in financing all kinds of assets. Despite Brexit, we are now starting to expand, and we are recruiting and training an excellent team of people at Mulberry who have expertise in the various sectors in which we operate.
What is the main issue that your clients have that you would like to fix?
Our customers work extremely hard building their businesses, but all too often they don't receive the necessary financial support and advice to help them consolidate and grow. SME's do not normally have a designated Financial Controller and therefore the owners can get side tracked into a lengthy process of trying to obtain finance. Mulberry Asset Finance work closely with them to arrange finance on their behalf, saving them time and money.
What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job?
Hard work, honesty and transparency.
What do you like about working at Mulberry Asset Finance.
I love the freedom and the fact that we can really make a difference. I just love working in Cumbria, the landscape, the creativity, there are some truly fantastic businesses across the industry sectors. I love meeting all the owners and operators throughout the County who have a real passion for their business. If I can take all the pressure of them by arranging their asset finance, then that's just great!
What are the values that drive you?
I think trust, honesty, integrity and loyalty are vital not only in business, but in life. My strong Christian faith has given me a solid base on which to build my life and despite many ups and downs along the way, I am still smiling and loving life!
What are you happiest doing, when you're not working?
Walking in the Lakes with my lovely wife, followed by a nice lunch and a pint. Going to watch Leeds United, I have been a supporter for 50 years & am a season ticket holder. Following Leeds I’ve seen a few ups, but so many more downs!
If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
Sat watching Leeds in the Premiership. Or Corfu town.
