After 10 years in the finance industry Jon Pearson has taken a redundancy situation (due to Covid-19) and turned this around into a positive opportunity to explore his own path!

Jon’s experience and knowledge in Education, Commercial and Professional loans has been gained from working in well known and established finance houses such as:

  • Investec/White Oak – 4yrs as Senior Account Manager
  • Wesleyan – 5yrs as Commercial Account Manager
  • and more recently Praetura Enterprise Finance for the past 12months as Business Development Director

It is at Praetura that Jon became responsible for his own targets, decision making and marketing and this insight, into running his own little business, encouraged Jon to discuss the franchise offering at AFS (UK) Ltd with a couple of friends (who were also Franchisee’s under AFS (UK) Ltd).

Their positive feedback about how smooth and easy it is with the support of the back-office team and the fact that you can “be your own brand” impressed Jon enough for him to make the move!

Jon will not be starting from scratch, he has a well-established client base who have followed him in the past and he’s extremely excited to now have more control, more freedom and more independence to help his existing, as well as new clients and Jon knows that with the support that AFS (UK) Ltd offers, he need never lose a client to someone else – as he knows that AFS Sales Department and our sister company Synergy Commercial Finance can facilitate deals outside of the Education and Professional sectors.
