Our Team

During the past 23 years our team has been associated with approximately $4 billion of asset financings, including thousands of mobile phone mast lease premiums.

We are experienced, creative, and sceptical of “one-size-fits-all” solutions. If you decide to work with APWireless you will actually meet the members of our team: we are directly involved in structuring each and every transaction.
