Rural Finance’s Directors

Rex Tattersall

I live in Bangor on Dee with my wife and 2 children. My eldest son Ross is part of our family run business.  I have worked in the Finance Industry since 1981, working in a wide range of sectors from Motor Finance to Agriculture. During this time, I have seen huge changes within the industry. In 2001 equipped with the experience I gained, I set up my own business.

In 2004, I helped set up and establish Rural Finance. I am now permanently based in our head office in, Wrexham.

As a Finance Broker, Rural Finance has given me the scope to expand and deal with most sectors of the Finance Industry. Rural Finance is constantly looking to adapt to the changing market and we are always looking to add new sectors and partners to our business.

Mike Latham

I have been working in the Agricultural Finance business for over 30 years, covering South Midlands and South Wales.

My office is based in Evesham, where I have a team of 4 representatives, who will look to cater for our customers financial requirements.

Simon Johnson

I am based in the North of England with my son Will who has joined our business as an asset finance broker after studying at Teesside University. Our local office is based just outside of Sedgefield in County Durham, and from this base we cover the north area extensively.

We have a wealth of experience and expertise in all aspects of financing individuals and businesses. We can provide a flexible, professional, efficient and personal approach to find the best solution for your business needs. Simon’s website

Sandy Russell

I have spent 35 years in the finance industry working for 3 major Finance Houses, predominantly in the agricultural sector. For the last 20 years I have been an independent finance broker covering the Shropshire Welsh Border and The North Midlands.

Having empathy with customers has resulted in the building of a large customer following with strong relationships built on trust and loyalty. My top priority is giving a professional service, whilst enjoying the job and having fun.

Mark Wightman

I have been involved within the finance sector for over 30 years, starting my career with Barclays. I became a Finance Broker in 1999. I cover the Cotswolds, Somerset, Wiltshire then down to Devon and Dorset.

I live and work from a small holding producing Angus beef for traditional butchers, so I understand the needs, pressures and challenges of clients in this modern world.

My aim is to be fast, friendly and efficient having built a wealth of experience and expertise to provide the support your business requires, both inside and outside of the agricultural sector. Mark’s website

Andrew Glover

I was an area manager with Barclays for 5 years and then became self employed working alongside FAF for 5 years. I left FAF and have remained self employed ever since.

I have an office based in Ayrshire, with a team of 6 people who are ready to help customers with their Financial needs.
