I have worked for Simply for over two years. I am based in Berkshire and work with businesses throughout the South East.  I have helped over 100 customers to find the right finance solution to fund their assets or business needs. I also work very closely with dealerships to help out their customers.  I previously worked in retail/telecoms management for fifteen years, then in commercial vehicle sales for four years. I pride myself in working closely with my customers to help grow their business by giving exceptional customer service along with expert knowledge,  backed with speed and transparency. When matched with Simply’s tech and support, this creates a first-class experience from the beginning right through to aftercare.  I am originally from Cornwall – so naturally, a born adventurer. I love the outdoors, hiking, and surfing, and my new hobby is now rock climbing. I am an avid environmentalist and believe greatly in doing what we can to reduce our impact on the planet by looking to go green, a topic I am more than happy to discuss.
