David English

David joined the Start Up Loans Company as Chief Marketing Officer in September 2015, having previously worked in a variety of marketing roles, industries and business sizes, including a start-up business of his own, which he ran for three years. During his career he worked with both multi-million pound marketing budgets and also shoestring budgets - he therefore understands the challenges that businesses face in delivering profitable growth.

An entrepreneur at heart, David has spent the majority of his 30 year career in marketing and therefore relishes the opportunity to help other would-be entrepreneurs to achieve their ambitions by providing the support and funding they need to get started.
