Amicus posts record July in bridging
The lender’s growth follows the recent appointment of Anita Kirkbright as operations manager, who joins from West One.
Gareth Ward has also joined the business, as a senior underwriter, from Castle Trust.
Kirkbright said: “It was a difficult decision to leave West One where I enjoyed four happy and exciting years but the opportunity to join a lender which the whole sector now sees as the new shining light was too good to turn down and I am really looking forward to contributing to the expansion plans they have in place for the next three years.”
Ward said: “With my experience you get a feel for which lenders are making the right impressions in the market and having followed the rise of Amicus in the past three years I am delighted to have joined what I believe to be the most experienced and open minded team of underwriters I have worked with.
“I am relishing the fact that clients are in direct contact with us and we have mandates to satisfy their requirements.”
Keith Aldridge, managing director at Amicus, added: “We are very pleased that our plans for growth are going so well. Figures of these magnitudes do not just happen. They are testimony to the outstanding work that our staff are doing on a daily basis and we are delighted to have succeeded in obtaining the talent of two very experienced people in Anita and Gareth.
“They have joined a team dedicated to supporting our valued brokers and distributors and to enhancing the enviable relationships we have with our valuer and solicitor stakeholder partners.
“Proactive service is at the core of our proposition and we are determined to recruit those special individuals who have this attribute as a natural part of their makeup.”
