Sophie Mitchell-Charman has joined LendInvest as a business development manager for Northern England.
She joins from Mint Bridging where she worked as a bridging BDM. With over 12 years’ financial services experience, Mitchell-Charman has worked as both a broker and a BDM, bringing a wide ranging skill set to the role.
Based in York Mitchell-Charman will primarily focus on deals in the North East. Sophie will source deals across LendInvest’s full product range, from pre-construction finance to development exit.
Matthew Tooth, chief commercial officer at LendInvest, said: “We’ve seen an increasing demand in the Northern market. Hiring our first Northern BDM at the end of last year has highlighted the potential within the region, one which Sophie, alongside Damien Druce, is more than equipped to capitalise on.
“Sophie’s breadth of experience as both a BDM and a broker puts her in a brilliant position to cultivate business in an area that is strategically important for our business development plans.”
Mitchell-Charman, BDM for Northern England at LendInvest, added: “As LendInvest’s profile continues to grow in the North, I am very excited to join the team during this crucial time of rapid national expansion. What will truly make the difference in the region is the diverse product range that LendInvest are offering, a suite truly tailored to a broad spectrum of borrowers. ”
The appointment is LendInvest’s third hire outside of London, and second in the North following the recruitment of Peter McDermid as BDM for Scotland in July 2016 and Damien Druce as a Manchester-based BDM in November 2016.
