Nick is a founding Director and shareholder of AFS Group, establishing the first group company Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd jointly with Co-Director Justin Ford in 2005. Having worked in the financial services industry since leaving school and then exclusively in the asset finance sector since 1994 for both high street banks and specialist Lessors, Nick has been in the broker market since 2005. As Group MD, a major part of his time is now spent developing those excellent working relationships with every Funder who help form, without doubt, the largest and most comprehensive Funder portfolio in the indirect finance market place.
AFS Group was formed after AFS Compliance Ltd was established in 2014, the Group’s FCA Principal business, which is responsible for all matters FCA and providing a wide range of supporting resources to the broker network businesses. In 2015 all of the experience gained from successfully building the Asset Finance Solutions franchise network to its market leading position was harnessed to introduce Synergy Commercial Finance Ltd. Synergy is aimed at commercial finance brokers and complements the specialist asset finance brokers operating within Asset Finance Solutions.
When not busy with the expanding day job, Nick likes nothing better than enjoying a day at the races and the additional buzz of racehorse breeding and ownership. He is also a long-standing junior football coach at the local village football club and a keen cyclist often exploring the local Yorkshire countryside.
