Alternative Bridging Corporation (ABC) has appointed two new members of staff.
Mike Jones has been hired as a business development manager, while Lawrence Burgess becomes the bridging lender’s new relationship director.
“Ensuring that our borrowers and brokers are aware of our commercial focus as a key lender in the short-term lending market has been paramount over the past year or so,” said Jonathan Rubins, ABC’s managing director.
“Expanding the team to support such progression is reflective of the trust that the broking and borrowing community continues to place in ABC, and we will respond by continuing our focus and expertise on short-term loans for the property and business community.”
Jones will look to expand ABC’s broker-facing business, while Burgess’ focus will be on building up communications with the professional community.
Rubins added: “It was evident to us that we had to grow our staff base in order to respond to the corresponding growth in our broker and borrower needs, and the addition of Mike and Lawrence – both of whom fully understand our products and intermediary requirements – will enable us to do this quickly and easily.”
“The challenge for the market is identifying those who ‘can’, rather than those who ‘would like to’. We have never seen ourselves as simply a traditional bridger but a provider of alternative finance for the commercial market, and appointment of Mike and Lawrence are significant steps which reinforce our position in this arena,” he said.
