Group Financial Director
More than just an ‘ex-Banker’ Alistair spent 30 years in Commercial/Corporate Banking before leaving at the end of 2009.
Since then Alistair has run his own Businesses and currently has a number of Business interests. Consequently, Alistair understands, has empathy with and practical experience of the issues facing Business Owners. Traditionally trained and professionally qualified Alistair’s skill set lies firmly in the SME arena.
Alistair is a plain-speaking individual who manages client expectation at the outset and interfaces with the Bankers for the best result – Gamekeeper turned Poacher?
Whilst not previously promoting his Banking Review skills Alistair has been sought out over the last few years to help clients facing issues.
What others say about Alistair
“Alistair has worked closely with us for the last 4 years helping a Director to mitigate his Personal Guarantee obligation where the Bank was being extremely vague in its promises and enticing the Director to continue working out a development scheme with the ‘carrot’ of assessing the guarantee obligation at the end of the scheme. By becoming involved, understanding the Bank’s position and the nuances involved with the process of dealing with the Bank and being able to assess the benefits to the Bank of the Director remaining involved versus an Insolvency or appointment of an LPA Receiver, Alistair was able to provide a common-sense approach throughout, substantiated by costs / benefits to the Bank and this obligation was significantly reduced from £600k to just under £100k.”
