Paul has been with ASC since 1991 following a successful career at director level in the food industry

In his near 20 years with the group he has consistently been one of the top performing offices whilst his P.A., Kim Drew, has worked with him for nearly 15 years and together they make a formidable team. His main office is in Peterborough with a satellite office in Lincoln.

It is testament to the work Paul does that so many ex clients return with further requirements. He provides an exceptionally high level of service to his clients, which is a fundamental feature of his business.


 “I can’t tell you how grateful I am as I will be able to double my business with this new site. At ASC you are positive about my business and treat me like a good businessman where everyone else treated me badly”. Philip Greaves

 “I have to say that in 24 years of business and dealing with mortgages and finance institutes you are by far the most professional and helpful company I have ever dealt with and I will recommend you and your services to anybody whom I think you can be of service to”.  Mick Dwane

 “Paul, you helped us buy our business back in 1998 and we want to express our gratitude for helping us realise our dream. You helped us save £20,000 at purchase after suggesting a business appraisal and we will now make over £200,000 in selling. Without your assistance we would not be in the position we are today.”  Chris & Pauline Thornley, Federation of Small Businesses members

Example case 1

Whilst all cases give Paul great satisfaction, he is particularly pleased when he assists a start up or expanding business such as Katie Wood in Sleaford with Woodside Children’s Nursery.

Katie found a property suitable for conversion into a 24 place nursery and Paul arranged a 100% finance package utilising suitable additional security. Paul was invited to the official opening by the local MP and was delighted to see a modern and colourful nursery in full swing.

Another fantastic outcome was with Marie Walker and her “Little Learners” nursery in Skegness. Marie had a leasehold nursery but had spotted an ex solicitors office premises for sale which she thought would make an ideal location for expanding her business. The outcome was a finance package sufficient for the purchase and conversion of the premises and it now has such an excellent reputation that it is in the finals of a national award for quality. Well done to Marie and her team!

More recently and in the difficult market place for development finance Paul has just completed on a barn conversion with a 100% finance package and having assisted a client build out 10 flats having been dumped by his bank is now refinancing the development loan onto a commercial mortgage based on the future rental income.

You know the old saying “when the going gets tough..............

He looks forward to helping you…

Example case 2

Another great outcome came from Paul meeting Tony & Jenny Waterall when he frequented their Restaurant/Bar, The Lemon Tree, near to Fishermans Bay in Albufeira on the Algarve. With Paul having been a regular visitor over a number of years Tony mentioned to him in 2003 that they were looking to repatriate and purchase a similar business in the UK also involving their son Jason and Paul left him a card.

The outcome was to everyone’s benefit as Tony called Paul in July 2004 and met him with Jenny when they were back in the UK in September. They discussed various businesses that were for sale and after a winter of viewings and much deliberation finally settled on The Red Lion Inn, Hognaston, Derbyshire and instructed Paul to find the finance in February 2005.    

They became the proud owners in June 2005 and now operate the business with their son, Jason, and it is a renowned drive out destination offering fine food, real ales and high quality letting accommodation once used by John F Kennedy jnr.

On his latest visit Paul with wife Pat and eldest son Philip who lives in Derbyshire and sails at Carsington Water overlooked by The Red Lion, enjoyed a fabulous Sunday Lunch which was served by the youngest member of the Waterall family, Chantelle, their granddaughter, who is clearly being trained in the family tradition.

For a similar excellent experience call Tony, Jenny or Jason on 01335 370396
