Tell us about your role at SFS


I specialise in delivering bespoke, tailored funding solutions & structures for the UK’s SME & Corporate Community. I am especially keen to forge strong relationships with the Siemens Supply Chain & Customer Base and actively seek collaboration with businesses, organisations and people operating in the sectors that are important to the global Siemens family. 


What makes you an expert?


I have a passion for helping companies develop, strengthen and expand their businesses – which I have done for over 25 years. I have enjoyed particular success and deep experience in engineering, manufacturing, technology, recruitment services, transport/logistics/supply chain services, healthcare/medical, industrial automation, building technologies, energy and wholesale distribution. 


What is your favourite thing about working for SFS?


I am extremely proud of the global Siemens Company and all of the fantastic activities it is involved in across the planet to improve the lives of millions of people. Working for Siemens Financial Services and getting the opportunity to support Siemens customers and suppliers makes me feel part of it all. 


Tell us a bit about yourself! 


I love spending any spare time I have with my young family – wife, son & daughter. I am currently undertaking England FA coaching badges and enjoy coaching my sons U8’s football team, playing a bit of football myself still & hacking about a golf course when the weather’s good. 


What does the future hold for you and your team?


To continue to gain momentum in integrating, collaborating and deepening the relationships we have with the Siemens businesses and supporting them through our knowledge and product range. We have a valuable proposition to offer and the ability to widen & expand our contribution to the Siemens family by continuing to innovate this offering.
