I came to Derby 30 years ago and always felt that the City undersold itself until Marketing Derby came along! My role is to ensure that owner-managed businesses are not unnecessarily frustrated by lack of finance. While high street banks are most people's first port of call, there is a huge range of alternative lenders; my job is to open their doors for local businesses.

Derby will only thrive if it attracts and retains the right calibre of people. Dynamic people will only be attracted by dynamic business opportunities.
