MEET STUART BIRD...

STUART’S BACKGROUND

After a career in the military and corporate security I was looking for a new challenge that would work with my skill set. I was encouraged to try Asset finance by the MD Brad O’Hara who is a lifelong friend. After cutting my teeth and gaining some excellent experience with a well known merchant bank I made the move into brokering with Alpha.

WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIALIST SECTORS

I have extensive experience in the construction and recycling sector but the business is so varied I have assisted customers with everything from camper vans & horseboxes to full blown recycling plants.

WHAT DO YOUR ‘NORMAL DAY’ AS AN AR LOOK LIKE?

There is nothing ‘Normal’ about it that’s part of the appeal, no two days are the same and every day is as varied as the customer, industry and asset allow. We have a great panel of funders which throw in another variable. I might spend the whole day on the road or in front of my laptop and on the phone, my favourite part is meeting the customers. I’m naturally inquisitive and I like to find out how my customers tick, what motivates them and how their businesses work. The better understanding i have the better the solution I can find for them.

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO WORKING WITH ALPHA?

Initially it was the directors whom are all close friends and most i’ve known since childhood. The MD introduced me to the industry and it seemed a natural fit, I was always involved in some aspect and understood the vision and ambition and wanted to be part of what Alpha were creating.

HOW HAVE ALPHA SUPPORTED YOU, AS AN AR?

Alpha are supportive in many ways, from the practical and technical side of the job to the personal and mental support. I’ve had many mentoring roles during my career but initially i was the student again and having to re-learn things i’d either forgotten or needed refreshing on. It’s important to keep on learning and Alpha have always encouraged that.

HOW HAS INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY ASSISTED YOU?

ACE is a much needed and long awaited breath of fresh air, one of the major faults of the industry as we saw it was the ability to communicate quickly and efficiently with our customers. ACE has taken this much further and allows a central hub for customer, broker and funder alike. It’s simplicity when compared to other CRM systems I’ve used is incomparable.
