Prior to joining Asset Finance Solution (UK) Ltd, Graham Scott-Barns spent a tremendous 25 years working in asset finance for several well-known banks.

It all started when Graham Scott-Barns attended School of Banking in South Africa in 1999. This is when he got a real feel of the finance industry. When Graham moved to the UK, his first job in Asset Finance was at Lombard, as a Senior Relationship Manager. Graham worked with commercial banks to generate asset-based lending with existing customers, whilst maintaining existing customer relationships.

During 2007 and 2014, Graham worked for: NatWest, as Associate Director, Business Development – sourcing new switcher and lending business from companies with turnover £2 -£25 million, then progressed to Regional Balance Sheet Manager.  In 2015 Graham moved to Lloyds Banking Group, as Business Development Manager for Lex Autolease before finishing as Associate Director for HP and Leasing, where he helped provide asset finance to companies with a turnover of £2 million to £25 million.

When Graham was asked why he wanted to join a network, he advised that he felt the personal service to the SME customer was being lost and by setting up his own Franchise, Graham feels he can offer a more bespoke, unique service and build a strong customer relationship.

Graham has wanted to join Asset Finance Solutions for a number of years, as he “liked the way we do things” and after discussions with our Sales Director, Lee Simms, Graham’s decision was finally secured.

Graham is located in Gatwick and is operating under the name of HP Asset Finance.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Graham to Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd and wish him all the best for the future.
