Glenhawk has appointed Peter Turner as a business development manager, who joins from Shawbrook Bank.
He joins Glenhawk’s 21-strong team, as the business moves into its next phase of growth. His appointment closely follows that of Steven Khan as chief operating officer last month.
At Shawbrook, Turner (pictured) he originated over £100 million of bridging and term loans in 2018.
Based in London, Turner will report to the company’s director of lending, Nick Hilton. He will be responsible for expanding and strengthening Glenhawk’s broker relationships in London and the South East, as well as driving Glenhawk’s aim to build out the loan book across England and Wales.
Prior to Shawbrook, he held the role of commercial director at All Types of Mortgages, where he oversaw the running of its commercial and short-term business. His near 20 years of real estate lending experience also includes roles at Commercial 1, RBS and Barclays.
Guy Harrington, CEO of Glenhawk, said: “Peter is joining us at a hugely exciting time, as we continue to put in place the infrastructure to support our growth ambitions, including growing the loan book to £100 million and expanding into new parts of the market.
“Specifically, his technical expertise operating in the bridging market and deep broker relationships built up at Shawbrook will be a huge asset to us as we look to grow our footprint both in our key markets in and around London as well as across the UK. His appointment is the latest example of our ability to attract high calibre individuals from both our competitors and other established financial institutions, which bodes extremely well for the future of Glenhawk.”
