BFS appoints head of underwriting
Davies has 25 years’ experience working in the corporate finance sector. She joins from Davenham Asset Finance where she worked as a business development manager, while she has also held various roles at NatWest over 17 years including asset relationship manager and business development manager.
Steve Barber, managing director at Bridging Finance Solutions, said: “This is a new role and one which will help streamline the application process.
“As we are dealing with more and more enquiries daily, we can find a bottleneck at certain stages, simply because of the increase in volume.
“To have one single, highly experienced person in place to deal with the underwriting will boost our capacity and benefit all customers.”
Davies added: “The bridging industry is a fantastic one to work in – the fast paced nature of bridging and the ability to do deals in days rather than months is refreshing.
“However, the correct processes and procedures are absolutely essential and taking the responsibilities of underwriting from other team members will help them focus further on their individual roles.
“I’ll also be looking at implementing new processes and developing new products that will be targeted at our increasingly diverse customer base.”
