Self-made millionaire, and star of Channel 4’s Bank Of Dave, entrepreneur David Fishwick has become one of the UK’s most recognisable TV faces and an expert on business and finance.

Determination and ambition propelled David to the top of the business game, even though he left school at 16 with no qualifications.

Buying and selling cars to help make ends meet, he persuaded a garage owner to hand over a part-exchange car, which he did up and sold on, and gave the garage owner £70. When the car was in perfect condition, he sold it for £97.

Now called David Fishwick Van and Minibus Sales Business, his venture is now the biggest minibus supply business in Britain, offering quick and affordable customised minibuses, and has a multi-million pound turnover.

David also set up a property portfolio and he has a vehicle parts business that provides commercial vehicle parts and sells them across the world.

He first came to the attention of the British public on his observational TV series, Channel 4’s Bank Of Dave, which documented his mission to create his own bank and send it into profit in 180 days, in order to prove that there are alternatives to the current banking system.

From a starting point of minimal banking knowledge, David figured that he couldn’t do much worse that the top high street banks – and “by hook or by crook I’ll get this bank open with sheer Northern Grit and determination." And he did - with his own cash, and without taking big salaries or bonuses, and with the intention of giving all profits to charities.

His business model was based on the concept of lending money to small businesses who were struggling to secure financial help from the major banks – offering them not only money but old-fashioned practical advice.

Dave’s book, Bank Of Dave, published by Virgin Books, appeared on the Sunday Times Business bestseller list.

His latest television programme Dave: Loan Ranger, tackles payday lenders and the dangerous and debilitating debt spirals individuals can find themselves in when using them.
