Biography

With over 15 years’ experience of supporting SME businesses, from start-up to corporate, Richard is extremely passionate about helping local businesses access finance.

Richard first entered the world of finance in 2005, when he joined Barclays as a start-up business manager. Ten years on, and after progressing through the ranks to become senior business relationship manager, Richard left the bank in 2015 and made the move to BCRS Business Loans, covering Birmingham, Coventry and Warwickshire.

After working closely with businesses for many years, Richard understands the many difficulties that businesses face – from inception to exit. As a business development manager at BCRS Business Loans, Richard’s aim is to support West Midlands based businesses that are struggling to access finance from traditional lender.

“To see businesses grow as a result of my support, knowledge and skillset gives me great pride and a sense of reward, and my background in banking and commercial finance enables me to meet our customers’ needs.”
