I have been involved in asset finance for over 30 years (doesn’t time fly when you’re enjoying yourself !), starting as a junior representative at Lloyds & Scottish Finance in Guildford. Promotion led me to managerial roles at their Chiswick & Watford branches. After gained a valuable experience in all aspects of commercial finance here, I wanted to venture abroad and obtain International experience. I moved to a Finance Trading House in Copenhagen, Denmark as an account manager covering Sweden and Finland. One of our clients was based inside the Arctic Circle where the temperature was -40C on one of my visits! At least we didn’t have to wear suits on those occasions.
I returned to the UK in the 80’s and started my own brokerage Co. – Chenalfame Ltd in West London. More than ten years ago we formed an alliance with First for Business Ltd which now offers a much wider range of skills and advisory services.
Being an ageing ‘rocker’ at heart, I enjoy motor bikes & blues music with some attempt at playing guitar and the occasional round of golf in between.
