Having met Roy just over two years ago I can honestly say it was one of the most worthwhile coffee meetings I have had. Roy understands the #finance market better than most and can identify the appropriate finance needed for a growing business whether that be debt or equity at whatever stage in the growth journey the business is in. Roy also gives valuable support to his clients and from my understanding gives that full rounded offer of advice and guidance to many businesses across the whole of the Northern Powerhouse. Great guy and I look forward to working with Roy more in the future.Sue Barnard, British Business BankI have worked with Roy and his clients to provide funding for a number of DropJaw clients via the Northern Powerhouse Investment fund. From a lenders point of view Roy and his team are able to position the deal and address questions positively to get the best result for their clients. Roy is great guy to work with and genuinely has his clients interests at heart.Mark Gibbons, GC Business FinanceI've worked with DropJaw over the past couple of months on a couple of very specific objectives, and every step of the way I've received the guidance and answers I've required in order to achieve what we set out to together. At this stage of the journey, we've nearly hit every goal we set out to - and I'm looking forward to the coming couple of months, where I am confident we'll continue to do the same. It's been a pleasure.Tom Keeping, Keeping StudioI've been working with Roy and Dropjaw for 2 years now. Roy takes a considered approach to fundraising for his clients. He understands funders' requirements and what they are looking for. His wealth of experience in business helps enormously in this regard and he always strives to do the best for both his clients and the funders. It is a pleasure working with him and I look forward to doing so for many years to come.Gary Guest, FW Capital
