An East Lancashire entrepreneur who started his own bank after selling mini-buses in his home town has been recruited as the bnew business doctore for the Mail Online and This is Money.

Dave Fishwick, from Sabden near Burnley, launched Bank of Dave, officially known as Burnley Savings and Loans in 2012, and was featured in a Channel 4 documentary series about his ambitious venture. 

The businessman, who owns a number of light aircraft and has been recently featured on the BBC's Morning Live, is also having his life story turned into a Netflix biopic starring Rory Kinnear of James Bond fame. 

And this week, the self-made millionaire was announced as finance website This is Money and the Mail Online's official Business Doctor - an agony aunt for finances.

Mr Fishwick is now looking for people who have questions or queries about business and finance to get in touch, as well of those seeking advice, and is particularly keen to hear from people living in his home county of Lancashire. 

Mr Fishwick said: "I am honoured and very excited to be asked to join such a huge global institution, founded in 1896, and I have been working with a wonderful team of people.

"The team in London love the Bank of Dave in Burnley and they they love what we stand for

"I would personally like to hear from people all across Lancashire, if you have a business and you would like to ask me a question or you would like a little advice on starting a new business or perhaps you want to change careers, drop me a line at and I will do my best to answer them on my page in the Daily Mail Online.

"Hopefully, I am helping a little to put Lancshire on the global map, and I would love to hear from local people, I really enjoy taking part in media, that will help make a difference to real peoples lives."
