I’m a UK-based entrepreneur, investor, and funding expert.
My specialist knowledge is in the finance, leisure and retail sectors, however, my fundamental principles are suitable for all industries and business sizes.
My investments & projects
Projects I have funded range from acquiring factory machinery, rolling out fast-food brands, stock acquisition for retail stores, and supporting property developers on sites across the UK.
My goals are to invest further in UK businesses, and support entrepreneurs to get more from their companies, and to support the British economy through the further creation of jobs.
I strive to find simple creative solutions, regardless of how complicated a situation may seem. If I see potential in your business proposition, I will find a way to support the project and provide the capital needed, ensuring you achieve your entrepreneurial dreams.

My business career started in 1999 when I was thrown in at the deep end to turnaround a failing corporate clothing business. Since then I have lived the highs and felt the lows of business success and failure in many different sectors.
In 2006, I established a finance brokerage and private lending business to provide funding to business owners struggling to get the capital they need to grow.
My first-hand experience of raising finance for my own businesses makes me different from most other lenders in the marketplace. Having had to do it for myself, I know the problems you face, which means I also know how to solve them.
My career has varied from pulling pints in my own pubs to serving on the board of a PLC, so I can draw on a business journey that gives advice grounded in reality.
During my past ten years working as an advisor, investor and funder of multiple companies, I am able to effectively recognise a great business opportunity and ensure business owners get the chance to achieve success.
