Meet the Car Finance Advisory Board

Here at Creditplus, our commitment to ethical lending and providing honest advice to customers is always our top priority. This is why we've put together our very own Car Finance Advisory Board. Formed by experienced car finance professionals, all the information and guidance placed on our site is read and approved by the board. If it isn't accurate or doesn't reflect our Core Values, then the Car Finance Advisory Board are there to ensure that our commitment to providing an ethical car finance service is maintained.

The Advisory Board has been set up so that Creditplus can:

  • Provide helpful, independent and accurate advice to our customers
  • Respond to specific questions and requests
  • Keep consumers up to date on key changes in our industry.

Tom Forster

Tom Forster CreditplusTom is currently Head of Compliance and as of 2016 has been with Creditplus for 6 years. Having previously run his own business, Tom was able to prove himself very quickly and has continuously shown great initiative and understanding of our company and our marketplace. He has the best overall picture of the company and its day to day running, having led many departments that work closely with each other.

His main responsibilities are Risk, Compliance and Training. He also works very closely with all the departments that make a deal happen and his work in risk allows him to find the best deal for customers based on their circumstances. Tom is also aware and up to date with the latest industry compliance requirements. This ensures that we're always above and beyond what the governing bodies asks of us at any one time.

It's no coincidence that all parts of the company will come to Tom at some point for guidance, clarification and advice. He is seen as one of the business's main authorities of information and he has been, and remains, instrumental to advising on website content.

Sarah Griffiths
