David Ward

When did you join Christie Finance?
1st November 2001 – it was then called Christie First.

Where were you when you accepted your role at Christie Finance?
On the train back from the interview in London.

What was your first role in Christie Finance?
I set up the Christie Finance office in Birmingham as part of the regional roll-out as it was previously London-based (York St). First was Glasgow, then Manchester and we were next. After Birmingham, they decided to install a broker in each of the (then) 16 offices nationwide, which then became two brokers in each office.

In a couple of sentences, can you tell us a bit about your job at Christie Finance?
I head up the medical team for Christie Finance and have recently moved to Corporate Debt Advisory – arranging finance for the purchase and refinance of pharmacy and dental groups. I also have a strong link with the Christie & Co medical team where we are able to work on many projects together.
