Vickers Young were established in 2012 by our Managing Director Corby Macdonald. With a wealth of mortgage and protection experience, especially in the self employed and adverse credit market, Corby felt it was time to set up a company that reflected his own ethics of putting the client first and trying our very best to help everyone, even those who may have had a blip in their lives. Still intent on growing the business further, Corby continues to drive the company forward and is looking to expand across the country. Corby is also the Commercial Director for his local Football Club Gresley Rovers, who are famed for reaching Wembley in the FA Vase final in 1991. In his spare time, he likes to collect and research Military medals.
Paul has been involved in the property industry since graduating from university in 2010 and brings a varied skillset to the sector. In addition to building and managing a property portfolio, he has gained experience working in both Property Finance & Business Development. After completion of his MBA in Business, Paul latterly managed a business growth function in mortgages and life protection before moving to his advisory role.
Paul’s hobbies include football, he is an avid Arsenal fan (Don’t hold it against him!) Snooker, as well as travelling back to his heritage in Cameroon, West Africa. Paul advises on all aspects of mortgages and protection and his specialist expertise lies in Let to Buy and Buy to Let, where he can advise extensively on landlord concerns and property hotspots.

Paul prides himself on being tenacious and getting his clients moved by forming effective relationships with other advisors and considers himself to be a rounded property and mortgage professional.
With a wife, a son and a crazy cockapoo to keep him busy, finding spare time to watch his beloved football club (ask him which team!) is a distant memory.
