STAR Asset Finance Group welcomes Paul Slapa as Group Commercial Director. Paul was previously a founder and commercial director at Praetura Enterprise Finance and brings over 15 years of experience…
Originally from New Zealand, I have spent the last twenty years working in the acquisition, merger and divestment markets and joined STAR Capital Partners in 2001 where I am a Partner responsible for a number of investments including STAR Asset Finance Limited.
I have been involved with STAR Asset Finance since the outset. My responsibilities are mainly to lead the search and management of acquisitions and as a Non-Executive Director contribute to key strategic initiatives including business expansion, financing and integration.
The group is set to arrange over £120m in asset and equipment finance for UK businesses over the next 12 months and I am very excited about its growth and development organically and through acquisitions.
As well as being part of STAR Asset Finance, I serve on the boards of other STAR Capital Partners’ investments.
When I’m not at work I can be found training for endurance events.
