“Adam plays a key role in our growing bridging team and shares in our growth ambitions, so we are delighted to welcome him to Assetz Capital,” said Mark Standley, national commercial director at Assetz Capital.
“We are seeing a significant increase in financial activity in the near term, so his appointment comes at a good time as we target a billion loans per year for all our solutions.”
This follows several recent hires to Assetz Capital’s bridging team.
In September, the platform appointed Mehwish Mirza as senior relationship manager and in July it hired two relationship directors, Laleta Buctkuar and Colin Mottram.
