Meet your short term finance Business Development Team:
Sales Director, Bridging
I have been in the specialist lending industry for over 20 years across all residential and commercial long and short-term lending. Specialising specifically in assisting intermediaries to support their clients with their funding requirements.
I joined West One in June 2021, I am responsible for the overall New Business and Distribution Strategy for the short term finance proposition.
Fun Fact - I am well known in the marketplace for my friendly collaborative approach to the business unless you find me on the golf course where I spend at least 4 hours feeling pretty disappointed with myself.
Head of Sales, Bridging & Development Finance
Region: North and Central London and The Home Counties
I am head of sales for bridging & development finance, I have been with West One for 6 & a half years, I have been in financial services for 17 years, so I have a wealth of experience and knowledge.
I am passionate about being able to see a deal complete, from end-to-end, and be able to move quickly to get it over the line. It gives me great job satisfaction to play a role in making that happen. Our industry is built on existing and new relationships, so this is key for me.
Business Development Manager
Region: South and East London
My first role in the financial services part of the industry was through Enterprise Finance as a BDM (part of Enra Specialist Finance). Overall, I have now been working in the property industry for 9 years and in property finance for 6 of those.
I love being able to help people achieve their goals, be that moving home or completing development for investment reasons. I love doing deals and there’s no better feeling than being able to call my introducer or client to give the good news and let them know their loan has been completed.
Fun fact - In 2019 took part in an organised “banger rally” for Charity driving from Cornwall to Morocco in fancy dress, raised over £2000 for Alzheimer's UK.
