Andrew Craggs is the Managing Director and founder of the ECS Group.
He has been involved in the commercial finance industry for the past 34 years. Initially working in the City of London then moving to work in Cornwall he returned to his native Yorkshire to join a division of the Royal Bank of Scotland as Regional Manager for the North East of England. His career has seen him assisting start up, growth and turnaround businesses across the UK and Europe working across all secotrs of trade.
“Business finance has been my passion since leaving education and I have been privileged to work with many clients that I have assisted from their birth to maturity. I recognised that the business finance market was changing rapidly and that business business owners struggled to keep pace with the changes in finance available. Setting up ECS Group was the best way in which I could assist clients to find and secure essential working capital and cashflow finance for their business.”
Away from the office Andrew has a love of travelling (in particular the Loire Valley in France), enjoys fine food and good wine, walking with his labrador Bramble and spending time with his family. He promises to start playing golf again but he has been saying that for 20 years!
