Our Managing Director Michael Primrose answers some Quick Fire Questions this week!
What is your favourite part of your role at TPFC?
I love that every day is completely different. There are never two days that are the same. I really enjoy putting finance deals together and structuring them to make sure the Clients achieve their desired outcomes. By having such a great team around me, we always manage to get the right result!
What is most challenging about your role?
What I love about the role is also the hardest and most challenging part, and that is the structuring of the finance deals! We always try to be super creative in what we do with Clients, however, this often means exploring strategies that people may not have come across before, so it is often challenging to get Lenders, Clients and Solicitors onboard!
What excites you most about working at TPFC?
I’m excited for the future. I have some huge growth plans for the company, and I can’t wait to see them evolve in the coming years. We have an incredible team, and I am sure this will be the foundation for some great growth.
What is your biggest accomplishment so far at TPFC?
For me it is managing to expand the workforce during lockdown. Whilst other companies have been letting staff go, we have managed to double the size of our team.
What has been your proudest moment at TPFC?
I have two. The first was seeing Alison, our first member of staff, completing her first deal. The second is seeing the growth that the company has gone through in such a short period of time.

What are some of your bad habits?
Wanting to grow! I have a bad habit of wanting to grow the company quickly and take on every person we interview! I’m having to reign this back in before we need to move office again!
What is one thing you now know that you wish you knew as a child?
I wish I had a Mentor when I was younger. Someone that could have installed an entrepreneur mindset at an early age. Had I known when I was younger that grades weren’t everything, then I would definitely have gotten started running my own businesses at a younger age!
If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?
Alan Sugar. Controversial, but a great businessman
If you won the lottery, what would you do with it?
Most of it would go into the growth of the business. I would definitely want to go big!
A good chunk would also have to go to Charity.
The rest would go on the usual… Cars, houses and holidays!
