Bridging lender Hope Capital has appointed three new members of staff.
Georgina Roscoe has joined the business as PA to CEO Jonathan Sealey; Joanne McGillicuddy has been appointed as underwriting assistant while Yvonne Dunn starts as admin assistant.
Roscoe has over 20 years’ experience, having previously held positions at international law firms in the City of London including Cooley LLP and Bircham Dyson Bell.
She said: “Hope is a fantastic company with a great track record, and I am looking forward to supporting Jonathan as he strives to take the business even further.”
In her new role at Hope, McGillicuddy will provide financial and administrative support to the underwriting team, to maintain up to date and accurate case data and ensure that all data meets data protection requirements.
Meanwhile, Dunn will help assist with the smooth running of the office.
Since June 2016, the lender has doubled its workforce to 14 staff with five new appointments this year so far.
The three appointments means over 70% of the staff are female.
Sealey said: “We have had a very successful year so far, with a 30% increase on our loan book in the first three months of 2018. To continue to grow, we need to bring people who can help us achieve our targets. Georgina, Joanne and Yvonne will play key roles in that growth, and we are delighted to welcome them all to the team.
“We will be moving to a new and bigger office in the next month, and will then be looking to take on more people in all areas of the business to help us achieve our ambitious expansion plans.”
