Hero of the month - Stephen Pegge

For longer than I have been in the angel industry, Stephen Pegge, currently Special Projects Director at Lloyds Bank has been loyally supporting the market.  Arguably the angels' favourite banker, Stephen has spent his entire career at Lloyds Bank with roles ranging from Director of SME Markets to his current one. He has always been a great champion of our world acting as the "link" many between it and our banking industry.  Many readers won't remember the old National Business Angels Network which preceded the UK Business Angels Association, but Stephen will.  Back then, the banking industry helped the angel market as a way of supporting its SME clients who needed funding that could not be supported by bank lending but as time has moved on Stephen has continued to do what he can to keep that support going at a strategic level.  He has long sat on the board of the UK Business Angels Association providing the sage advice that only a man as experienced as he can do.

Stephen was the man who has been instrumental too in providing financial support to the industry - only last week Lloyds Bank sponsored an award at the UK Business Angels Association's annual awards ceremony.  Thanks to him our own Great British Private Investor Summit was able to get off the ground over five years ago.  

 

Stephen understands the angel mindset and recognises how important angels are to the development of the UK economy.  We are lucky to have him around and long may he last!
