Director, ALPHERA Financial Services
After more than a decade within the BMW Group Financial Services family, Spencer Halil returned to ALPHERA Financial Services in 2015 to head up the award-winning motor finance provider. Having taken up the directorial role, Spencer is responsible for leading the Alphera business through the next phase of its transformational growth.
This follows a period which has seen the business celebrate its most successful results to date, win multiple awards and launch an innovative new business model to help dealers benefit from the FCA market changes.
Spencer most recently held the post of General Manager, BMW Group Brands (2013-15), where he played a significant role in implementing a first-to-market, transformational new business model for financial services across the BMW Group in the UK.
Prior to his UK role, Spencer was General Manager for Australia, leading the BMW, MINI and Alphabet operations from Melbourne (2011-2013). This followed on from his first spell at the helm of Alphera in the UK, where he provided overall management accountability and direction for the business from 2006-2011.
Spencer’s career at BMW was preceded by significant experience in the retail finance and automotive sectors, working with National Westminster Bank, Lloyds Bowmaker (now Black Horse), Peugeot, Volkswagen and Audi.
A graduate of Politics and Philosophy at London Guildhall University, Spencer has a large family and a love of riding down mountains on a bike – as well as taking to the roads on his motorbike.
