Cheryl Levy - Client Liaison Officer

Managing multi-million pound budgets is challenging in anyone’s book, but when you’ve managed it successfully within the fast moving fashion industry, buying and merchandising for some of the biggest names in the business, it takes on another dimension entirely. Cheryl puts all this experience to good use liaising with our ever expanding portfolio of investors; the engine room of West One’s funding model. Cheryl ensures all new investor clients have had the appropriate screening and completed all the paperwork needed to join our funding panel. We often wonder if she sees a new client as so next year!

Susan  Bamberger - Collections Manager

Whilst Susan may not actually be able to see into the future, (although some might argue that particular skill) it is the future itself which is at the heart of her role. Susan monitors the health of our active loans and loans approaching the end of their term, ensuring any potential issues are professionally and elegantly finessed. With her impressive background of some 17 years with Lloyds TSB in business banking, mortgage finance and debt management, you would be hard pressed to find a situation Susan hasn't experienced before.
