Paul Newman

Commercial Manager

I started Balance in 2010 after many years working for Barclays & HSBC in senior roles, to help businesses cope with the tough times that lay ahead & over 9 years later we have helped to access of £300m of approved funding for our ever expanding client base. My team and I are more than just a finance partner to our clients, aiming to be trusted advisors/critical friends and love working with them to source innovative funding solutions, whilst helping to manoeuvre the “minefield” of complicated process.


I try to “keep it simple” for the benefit of all parties in every deal and because we understand the pitfalls of funding, we can plan a clear route for all to follow.


Away from work, I have a busy family life as an adopted Devonian in my home city of Plymouth and my love of sport has led me to a successful 10 year managerial career in local youth football. From 2019, I am part of the management team for Torpoint FC men’s team and am looking forward to a taking a group of talented young players into the local semi- professional game and beyond.


In both my work and personal life, I believe in the mantra “Facta Non Verba” – Deeds not Words ?
