Meet the Team: Adrian

If you’ve worked in the automotive industry with companies like Porsche, Lamborghini, or Bentley, there’s a good chance you’ve met Ade, or he may have been involved in your finances.

Our Brummy salesman and business development manager is one of our go-to people for any specialist knowledge or advice, specifically when it comes to Porsche. Having entered into the motor finance world in 1997, Ade started on the Lloyds Bowmaker Graduate scheme, and progressed to Group Development Manager in 1998. After a couple years in the role, Ade joined Porsche Financial Services in March 2000 as Regional Manager, before transferring to Volkswagen Financial Services in 2010. In the later stages of his time at Volkswagen, Ade also had responsibility for the remote support for the Bentley and Lamborghini networks, prior to joining Magnitude in 2020.

Hobbies and Interests

Away from working life, Ade is a keen enduro and trail mountain biker. Riding locally a couple of times a week, he also likes to get out and travel to bike parks and trail centres in his spare time.

Ade also enjoys taking part in charity events and has ridden the Birmingham Velodrome twice, along with numerous Wolf runs, half marathons and even one full marathon. When Ade does finally slow down, he loves nothing more than spending time with his partner Samantha, and their nine year old daughter, Poppy.

The first Porsche I ever financed was in April 2000. I did two for the same customer who then had to sell them both to purchase a Carrera GT.”
