Tony Sanchez speaks to sales execuive, Rhys Le Quelenec.
What is the best thing about being in the bridging finance business?
Working with people who you can trust, knowing that the solid working relationships you have built will aid you in achieving a clear common goal, where everyone is a winner!
What keeps you focused?
My personal aspirations to build a successful career in the industry, and a missus who keeps me on my toes!
What qualities do you look for in your employees or colleagues?
Good work ethic, a can-do attitude, and a good sense of humour.
Are you an optimist or a pessimist?
Having relocated shortly before the COVID pandemic and having taken on the challenge of a new career path, optimism has been a necessity and has served me well!
What did you want to be as a child?
Professional footballer…optimism isn’t always enough!
What will be the greatest challenge facing the bridging finance industry in the coming months?
As an individual, I have genuinely learnt to try and see any challenge as a positive, so whatever challenges we do face, I’m hopeful that they will help build a better future.
Who or what makes you laugh?
It doesn’t take much; I feel I’ve got a pretty good sense of humour.
Do you dread Monday mornings?
Not when I have a good work-life balance and a career which keeps me motivated – I am very grateful to have both.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I wish I had more determination to get myself in better physical shape…being a professional footballer was always a dream rather than a goal.
With whom would you most like to have dinner?
Sir Alex Ferguson…I’m sure he could tell me where I went wrong.
