Sunil Dial

Co-Founder

I spent 9 years working within the Financial Services industry, where I worked for a range of institutions such as HSBC and Barclays. I started at a local business level, moving in to senior management roles. As the Head of Strategic Development at Aldermore Bank, I was pivotal in constructing and implementing new market propositions to the Invoice Finance industry. I have been consistently a top performer, and have been successful in a range of environments from large global corporates to start ups and fast paced growing businesses. I have a unique blend of experience within credit risk, relationship management and strategic development and it is these experiences that have enabled me to build an extensive network within the financial services sector. Away from my day job, I can be found spending time with my young family. However, I am notorious for my love affair with sport and can regularly be found avoiding the treadmill at the gym, or in front of satellite television in the early hours watching live cricket or boxing.

Q1: Name 3 things you'd take with you on a desert island?
Solar powered television, the biggest satellite dish and a solar powered phone so that I can call for a lift once I had finished watching the football in peace.

My late brother.

Q7. What's your favourite film?
Hmm...so many...lets go with the Matrix, makes you question a lot of things in life...and can I add Vanilla Sky, love the concept!

Q8. Who do you admire the most in your life?
Apart from my wife and kids who are superhuman (we are like the 'Incredibles'), I would have to say my parents who despite everything life throws at them are always there for us.

Ooooh has to be the ability to time travel.

Q10. What do you love most about your work life?
The people I work with and everyday is different or new challenge.

I’ve been working in the wonderful world of recruitment since July 2008 for nearly a decade with the war wounds to show, though somehow I’ve managed to keep hold of my hair, no mean feat as some of my colleagues will reluctantly admit.

I am currently the Sales Director, responsible for the performance and growth of our London office with a view to building a first-class team of motivated and successful recruiters, with some happy clients in tow.
