What was your first job? 

My first job was a Tutoring Assistant for AE Tuition, an institution for supporting children in the primary and secondary school age groups in preparation for their exams.

As I have already developed strong relationships within the industry, I have enjoyed being able to assist various clients as a commercial broker. I am now really happy to be able to continue on this journey with Christie Finance, which has such significant potential!

What made you want to work for Christie Finance? 

Christie Finance has an excellent reputation within the industry. I’m really excited to be able to work with a market leader that arranges finance solutions for trading businesses. There is so much potential with the growth of their Real Estate finance proposition too, which is something I am personally very excited to assist with.

What are your hobbies outside of work? 

I am quite an active person. I go to the gym daily and I play football, tennis and squash, which helps to maintain my cardio exercising. On the other end of the spectrum, I also binge Netflix series’, which I could do all day, and this mainly involves re-watching Breaking Bad or Suits.

What is one piece of advice you would give to someone looking to buy a business? 

Do your due diligence to ensure you have understood the business you are purchasing, and this will support your sustainability in the future.
