Sutcliffe graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a degree in Urban Development and Economics, before beginning his career in financial services as a mortgage underwriter for Abbey National in Bradford. In 1998, he moved to Cambridge, where he spent three years as a mortgage adviser for Cambridge Building Society.

Prior to his appointment at Amber, he spent three years as an independent financial adviser for Bradford & Bingley, based in Otley and Yeadon.

Sutcliffe has great experience in the lending market and will enable Amber to offer a additional and valuable level of regional support.”
