Anthony Persse

Chief Executive Officer

I have worked in financial services and credit for 20 years, starting when I was just 10 years’ old. I love working at Optimum Finance because we make a real difference by supporting SMEs in accessing cash that they need to run their businesses.  I also find it wonderful that our fantastic team are equally as passionate about doing what’s right for our valued clients. 

As CEO, my role is to bolster Optimum Finance and the businesses we serve the positive change and stress-free invoice finance services.

Most of my spare time is spent with my amazing family.  However, I do like to relax on an evening with a glass of wine and I hope to learn to play the guitar my wife bought for me a couple of years ago.

Fun fact about me - As a child I starred in an advert for a Welsh Gold Mine.
