Go Commercial Finance has appointed two new members of staff and created a new role, broker relationship manager (BRM), combined with underwriter.
James Jenkins who takes up the combined role, has had a long career with RBS, which included over six years as a senior relationship manager. At RBS, he developed his specialism in organising finance for customers who wanted to build and expand their investment portfolios.
The BDM underwriter role has been created to streamline the process for brokers.
In addition, the South Wales based commercial finance brokerage has appointed Simon Perrin as business finance consultant, based in the Gwent area to support the company’s growth strategy.
David Vieira, managing director of Go Commercial Finance, said: “We started the new year with a clear strategy of offering our expertise to the IFA and broker market. Brokers are often told that they are working with experienced commercial finance professionals, but this is not always the case. We have over 65 years’ experience within the commercial mortgage and property lending market and the appointment of James Jenkins and Ian Tovey, head of property lending at Go Commercial Finance (ex NatWest Property), reaffirms this.
“The appointment of key members of staff will aid our ambitious development plans for 2018. We have achieved exceptional growth in the last two years, having moved to larger offices as a result and we are keen to keep this momentum going.
“It is crucial for us to ensure that brokers and their clients get the funding they require, in the timescale that suits their business needs. If we continue to meet and surpass our client’s expectations, then Go Commercial Finance Ltd itself will continue to grow exponentially. Our latest appointments will undoubtedly help us to provide that exceptional level of service and continue our ambitious growth plans for the future.”
Go Commercial Finance grew by almost 50% in 2017 and says it is on track to duplicate this in 2018.
Last month, Go Commercial Finance extended its panel of lenders with the addition of Atom Bank.
