Gregg Harding

Business Finance Advisor

Access to Finance Plus

Alternative debt specialist in addition to cashflow forecasting and business planning.

Over the last 30 years Gregg has worked in alternative finance for finance houses supporting businesses on asset finance, business loans and factoring as well as crowdfunding and investments.

During his early career in business and asset finance, and later as a financial adviser, Gregg supported numerous businesses, equipping them to continue trading through the tough economic climate – experience that he later brought to bear as a Finance Director for a leading Plymouth business.

With Gregg’s expertise and guidance, the latter obtained funding for rapid growth, increasing its turnover from £2m to £6m, and workforce from 20 employees to well over 100, in just 12 months. Gregg remains a shareholder and consultant to the facilities management business he helped to form, managing projects for, amongst others, Transport for London/London Underground, Hitzinger UK and Community 1st Cornwall.

In addition Gregg has been appointed as a Non-Executive Director for Memory Matters CIC, a leading dementia charity based in Plymouth.

Gregg has spent the last 14 years using his experience and knowledge to coach and mentor businesses to access finance, and as Project Director for the access to finance project funded in London by J P Morgan, he and his team won the UK SME Finance Award at the London Excel Business Awards in 2016 and his project was chosen as the global case study for JP Morgans Corporate Social Responsibility projects.
