Nick’s background includes various sales and managerial roles in the commercial asset sectors with Barclays, HSBC, RBS, and Bank of Ireland.
Nick brought the only prior experience of the brokerage market to the business, gained from his position of General Manager of the ‘in-house’ brokerage at the Mills Manufacturing Group, the largest independent machine tool dealer and agency in the UK, now based in Leamington Spa.
His experience at Mills enabled Nick to establish a number of successful manufacturer and dealer relationships for B2B, offering a ‘point of sale’ finance solution that consistently achieves incremental sales of capital assets using finance as one of the lead strategies.
Nick's ‘direct sales’ role within B2B delivers Asset Finance and Invoice Finance direct to market, and he is responsible for managing the development of existing relationships with B2B’s growing customer base. Naturally his role also derives opportunities for ‘whole-life’ financial solutions on behalf of our ‘Consultancy’ business.
In addition to his role as Company Secretary, Nick is responsible for the financial management of B2B, IT systems and infrastructure, and ongoing systems and procedural compliance in regard to the Financial Conduct Authority.
Nick also spent 13 years as a Magistrate (JP)
