I joined Grant Thornton in 2004, having completed my accountancy training and then moving into industry where I worked within the equipment leasing and consumer finance industries for a number of players as finance director.
I lead our unique and market-leading leasing, asset and consumer finance team, which provides bespoke advisory services including restructuring, finance raising, M&A, due diligence, and operational and strategic advice. The team covers all areas of equipment and consumer finance, asset-based lending and, more recently, the automotive sector across the UK and Europe, advising the corporate players and their stakeholders.
Although not aligned to one sector I have advised companies operating in retail motor finance, fleet management, plant and machinery finance, rail finance, rental businesses, credit card providers, mortgage lenders and unsecured lenders. I have also lead numerous assignments in the renewable energy space.
