Rob Jupp, CEO of Brightstar, added: “We are committed to providing the best service in the specialist lending market. Bringing a person of Andy’s quality and experience on board is a further indication of our determination to be the specialist lending hub of choice for the greatest number of brokers in 2013 and beyond.”
Jacovou said: “The bridging sector is continuing to grow and I am looking forward to bringing my knowledge to bear in helping Brighstar’s brokers and their clients with their enquiries.
