As a hard-working, extremely successful former Agribusiness Bank Manager, I have used the knowledge gained in banking to establish my own successful business.

I am highly effective at securing funding sources for a large portfolio of rural businesses, whatever their need, and provide a unique training and mentoring services for companies.

In my earlier career, my marketing, organisational and administration skills were instrumental in growing the TSB’s and, Clydesdale Bank’s Agribusiness portfolio in the South and East of England between 1986 and 2012.

My focus is now to secure funding for clients, whether it is working with client’s existing funders, or identifying alternatives sources of funding.

I  support clients by:

  • Identifying the best finance structure for their business
  • Introducing other professionals to clients to help them create budgets
  • Helping clients to demonstrate a robust case to the bank
  • Mentoring and training
