We would like to offer a warm welcome to James King who is joining the AFS network under the Franchisee Jon Dufton and Amica Finance!

James, (who is a Kiwi living in Scotland) certainly has a strong background in asset finance having worked previously at Shawbrook Bank in the Direct Sales Asset Finance team for nearly 4 years and for the past 4 years at a Brokerage, working the central belt of Scotland.

James’s skill set is quite clearly asset finance, both hard and soft, as well as commercial loans.  He is, however, very passionate about his customers, whether they are a startup, long established or indeed a corporate entity and he’s looking forward to being able to offer them a wide range of products which is now available to him by joining the AFS network.

It was during the 1st lockdown that James got in touch with Jon Dufton, who he worked with at Shawbrook Bank, to generally ask him how things were going.  Jon explained that his business was doing well and after a lengthy conversation offered James an opportunity as an Appointed Representative under his Franchise.

This offering meant that James would have flexibility, independence and a work/life balance that was becoming increasingly more important to James.  It would also mean he would have access to the whole of the UK (or more realistically Scotland), rather than a ‘patch’, access to a huge funder panel providing a wide range of products, as well as having the support from a reputable compliance and sales support team working away in the background, leaving James to do what he enjoyed the most – helping and solving financial problems for his customers!

With nothing to lose, James took the opportunity!

We would like to wish James King, the best of luck for the future.
