John Brooks

Associate Director

John has spent his entire professional career spanning 4 decades, in the banking industry. The vast majority was with Natwest Bank. After leaving them in 2016, he joined a specialist alternative finance lender who provided bespoke growth and/or acquisition finance to SME’s.

After leaving the organisation, John decided a slight career change and moved into the advisory and finance broking sector, but his focus was still supporting the business and SME community.

John now brings all this experience and knowledge to Empire Global Finance to continue supporting SME’s.

He has worked with hundreds of business owners and management teams over the years, and this has given him such a valuable insight and understanding of many industry sectors and in particular, Real Estate, Professional Practices and event driven finance eg. Acquisitions, MBO’s and Growth Finance.

He prides himself on building and maintaining strong working relationships with businesses and their advisors, as by doing this enables him to deliver bespoke financing solutions to help them achieve their ultimate goals and ambitions. He remains very passionate about supporting all his clients and providing exceptional client service.

Outside of work John is a lifelong Chelsea Fan but loves all kinds of sport (watching, no longer playing sadly).

He enjoys socialising with family and friends and finding a new bar or restaurant to visit!
