The Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL) has elected its new executive committee.
Five new members have joined the committee while former member Allan Kay, managing director of Alternative Bridging, continues his membership from previous years.
As well as Kay, the new committee for the next year will now comprise:
- Brian West, head of sales at Central Bridging
- Keith Aldridge, managing director of Amicus PLC
- Jon Hall, director of Masthaven
- Jonathan Sealey, CEO and founder of Hope Capital
- Scott Marshall, lending director at Roma Finance.
Kay said: “The ASTL is continuing to go from strength to strength and I am once again looking forward to contributing to its achievements in the bridging sector.”
Benson Hersch (pictured), chief executive of the ASTL, added: “I am confident that the new committee’s experience and knowledge will continue to build on the success we’ve made in recent years. Having new committee members will help to inject a new perspective into the ASTL, bringing fresh ideas and impetus.
“The six appointed committee members aim to improve the level of support the trade body provides its members, help to further increase the association’s profile and assist in raising the high standards of the bridging industry.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank previous members Andrew Bloom, Steve Marsh, Mark Posniak, Alan Margolis and Wyn Morrell who all helped continue to drive the association forward. Thanks also to Allan Kay whose continued support will be much appreciated.”
