Julian Pilkington is the newest member to join our network of brokers and will be operating under the name of Adonai Asset Finance Ltd.
Julian Pilkington left school at the age of 16 and was keen to get straight into work. He landed his first job at Barclays bank in the Post Department, placing stamps on envelopes and collecting the post throughout the office. In total, Julian spent 7 years at Barclays with his final position working within the Personal Loans sector. Having spent most of his working life in asset finance Chartered Trust, Lloyd’s and Blackhorse he moved into the motor industry. Two years with Peugeot then three years as the Group F&I Manager for Marshall Motor Group based in Cambridge. He then became Sales Director at Credo Asset Finance in Norwich for 6 years then moved to JCB Finance. Julian proudly declares he was the “Top Performer” during his 3 years as Territory Manager at JCB.
After 3 decades working in asset finance, Julian has now decided to become his ‘own boss’ and therefore decided to set up his own franchise with Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd.
What attracted Julian Pilkington to Asset Finance Solutions (UK) Ltd was our ‘broker in a box’ service. He stated that he had “always wanted to do it” but could never find the time to do all the accounts and the compliance work that went with it. The support from the office team played a key part to Julian, he admired the fact that he could always call the office and seek advice from all the team.
Julian aims to build up his customer base partly from his wife’s career; as she works in the high-end cosmetic/beauty industry and his intentions are to generate leads from cosmetic networking events he will attend with his wife. Julian also already has a large existing customer base which he plans on building up through word of mouth. Julian isn’t sticking to all the traditional ways as he is going to use Instagram as one of his main sources, you can follow him @adonaiafl
Not only will he be operating in the medical/beauty & cosmetic sector, Julian is eminently experienced in the agricultural, construction and the renewables sector and will be generating those type of deals.
