Partner Greg Standing has been named as a Leader in the world of Vehicle Finance. The Motor Finance Power 50 celebrates the most important, influential and notable members of the motor finance industry.
Greg features in the Top 50 list alongside the likes of Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne and Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England. Chris Sutton, managing director of Black Horse, the largest independent lender, took the top spot.
With a niche specialism in automotive and asset finance, Greg has spent 15 years working in the finance industry. A regular contributor to Motor Finance, he frequently advises on the Consumer Credit Act and the increasing FCA supervision of the industry.
Greg said: "It's an honour to be named in the Power 50 for a second time and I'm certainly in some great company. Most importantly it's great profile for the firm and nice to see some clients making well-deserved appearances in the list too."
Partner Stuart Young, who heads the Automotive sector group, added: "It comes as no surprise that Greg, with his experience and niche expertise, is considered a major player in the world of motor finance. The list is voted for by individuals within the industry and he is exceptionally well-respected in this field."
