From the moment I entered the mortgage industry more than 30 years ago, I knew I had found my perfect fit. Over the last three decades I have amassed a wealth of industry experience, not just in the lender forum, but also as MD of my own packager business and as a successful landlord and developer. This knowledge and understanding has left me perfectly placed to be able to educate brokers and help them to understand how specialist lending can help their customers. As Director of Sales at Precise Mortgages for nearly 10 years, and one of the original members of the business, I have helped shape and grow our award-winning Sales Team into the formidable force they are today. Education is at the heart of everything we do, ensuring we share our knowledge wherever possible to assist in upskilling brokers. I’m proud of the work we do and what we have achieved, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for Precise Mortgages.
