Gavin Scott
Gavin Scott MANAGING DIRECTOR

Gavin Scott

Before founding Azule with Peter, I worked for, um, Peter. In total I have been working in broadcast, sound and lighting finance since 1998. After all this time I like to think I have lots of experience but I’m always learning about the technology. My main expertise is in sound and lighting having financed many major rental companies including plenty that have staged some of Europe’s largest tours and festivals. Outside of work I am married with 2 young boys, and a daughter who keep me busy on the weekends, generally ferrying them around to sports clubs and activities. When I have some free time I become a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) and get out on my road bike for anything between 40 and 60 miles of cycling. My other passions include golf and football (sorry, I’m a Chelsea fan).
My greatest moment: Becoming a dad.
My favourite TV Show: Top Gear.
If I could live in a movie I would choose: The Hangover.
Best music gig been to: U2 at Twickenham Stadium.
Currently on top of my bucket list: Parachute Jump from a plane.
My favourite flavour of jelly: Strawberry.
James Werts
James Werts CREDIT DIRECTOR

James Werts

I am responsible for assessing, analysing and underwriting every finance and credit requirement that Azule receives. It is fair to say that I enjoy reading financial reports and management accounts more than it is normal. I am highly in demand around the office as everyone wants to underwrite their deal asap. Despite this pressure I cope well and it all works like clockwork. Honest.
My greatest moment: Is yet to come.
My favourite TV Show: Gardeners’ World, anything with David Attenborough in it or Jackass.
If I could live in a movie I would choose: Avengers’ Assemble, Spinal Tap, the occasional trip to Castaway.
Best music gig been to: Stone Roses, Earls Court, late 1995.
Currently on top of my bucket list: Is another bucket.
My favourite flavour of jelly: Strawberry and sprinkles.

Will Duckitt

I’m a proud Yorkshireman who has been living down south for the last 8 years. My work background is in building sales and compliance teams across a variety of industries, from healthcare to food and drink, professional services to manufacturing. In my spare time my passions are rugby, cooking and occasional karaoke. If I can combine all 3 then it’s a great weekend. In reality, I spend the majority of my spare time running round after my 18 month old son.
My greatest moment: Climbing Kilimanjaro, and becoming a dad
My favourite TV Show: Phoenix Nights, Peep Show, I’m Alan Partridge
If I could live in a movie I would choose: Escape to Victory

Come rain or shine, I love spending active time outdoors whether it’s walking, hiking or running; and I like to make up for it by eating cake, preferably of the German ‘Sahnetorte’ variety (think Black Forest Gateaux)! My motto is ‘why wait until tomorrow if it can be done today’, but if all else fails there is always ‘tomorrow is another day’ to fall back on….
