Bridging lender Mint Bridging has appointed Peter Howarth to the position of credit manager.
He previously spent 35 years at NatWest in the UK real estate division handling a portfolio of clients.
He has been tasked with client and transaction management risk for Mint Bridging and will report to Andrew Lazare.
Howarth said: “I am so pleased to join Mint Bridging in this newly created role. My experience to identify issues early and to mitigate risks to loans by challenging assumptions is where my real skills lie.
“Mint was brave enough to see that the volumes of loans currently, and forecasted to go through this year, required a dedicated person to ensure the smoothness of the transactions.”
Lazare added: “We are delighted that Peter has joined us. His expertise in this role will be a huge benefit to the growth plans for Mint Bridging. We are having our busiest quarter and Peter’s input will be part of our success and enable our loans to process smoother and faster.”
