About Paul

With more than 30 years’ experience, Paul Stringer is one of Norton Finance’s longest-serving employees. Having held a number of positions with the company over the years, Paul is now a company Director, using his extensive industry knowledge, passion and experience to make key strategic decisions for the benefit of the business and our customers.

Paul joined the Norton Finance family in 1988 as an Underwriter, where he gained significant industry knowledge and experience in the secured loan and mortgage market. This allowed him to make his way through the ranks to become Head of Loans, a position he held for 10 years. In this role, Paul further expanded his understanding of the secure lending market, giving him the skills required to become a Director at Norton Finance, helping our business work on every level - and assisting our customers when it comes to getting access to the right finance for them.


Paul’s interest in all things finance started at school, where he studied Economics at A-Level, allowing him to develop a deep understanding of how the economy works. This strong knowledge base has stood him in good stead when it comes to making the strategic decisions that shape Norton Finance every day.

In addition to this, Paul has also undertaken training with Dale Carnegie to expand his knowledge of managerial skills. This has helped him form a strong working relationship with the staff at Norton Finance to, in turn, give our customers the service they come to expect.

Paul’s experience and knowledge means that he is recognised as an industry leader. Because of this, he regularly takes part in financial forums and roundtable events with other industry experts for leading publications such as Financial Reporter, Mortgage Introducer and Loan Introducer.

His expertise means that as well as sharing observations with the industry and press, Paul has also frequently been asked to judge industry awards, including the Loan Talk Awards and the Mortgage Introducer Awards, showing how the industry values Paul’s expert opinions on how the financial world is operating.
