A warm Sterling welcome to Tony Airey; the newest member of the team!
Tony has over 39 years of Banking, Corporate Finance and advisory experience gained in the Corporate Finance divisions of the High Street Banks, a specialist Growth and Corporate Finance Lender and the Lead Advisory within a national accountancy firm.
Tony is eager to add to the Corporate Finance capability at Sterling and add his own skills and experience to the team. He also has experience of the Commercial Finance Broking arena and enjoys assisting clients with all funding requirements, not just in MBOs and Acquisitions.
He is well known in the Leicestershire Business locality and is a keen networker and accomplished connector of businesses. to specialist advisors and professionals. We welcome the opportunity to strengthen the Sterling offering into Leicestershire.

” I am really pleased to be joining the team at Sterling and the opportunity to grow our client base by working with my contacts in Leicestershire. It’s a county I am proud to have called home for over 30 years and where I have worked for nearly 40. The business community is strong and vibrant, and I look forward to helping clients in my normal relaxed, but professional manner.
Above all I have known many of the Sterling team for a very long time and the opportunity to work alongside a well-regarded and professional team is very exciting.”
