Short-term lender, Atelier Capital Partners, has made three new hires, including Paul Silva as chief financial officer.
Silva joins from Puma Property Finance, where he was finance director.
Meanwhile, Smithi Sharma becomes operations & assurance analyst. She joins from Kensington Mortgages, where she was a financial crime investigator.
Finally, Laurence Robinson has been appointed as portfolio manager. He joins from Link Asset Services, where he was asset manager & business analyst.
Keith Aldridge, co-founder of Atelier Capital Partners, said: “The current uncertainty in the market also brings opportunity and we are confident that demand from developers will bounce back as a degree of normality returns. Last month we made four additions to our Credit and Risk team and I’m now thrilled to welcome aboard Paul, Smithi and Laurence, all of whom bring masses of experience and entrepreneurialism.
“Nobody is expecting a smooth ride for the property market or the wider economy in the months and potentially years ahead, but the supply deficit and the need to build homes remains high. Our message to brokers and developers alike is we are here, we are open for business and feel we can offer high certainty around deal execution given our institutional funding.”
