Black & White Bridging, the national short-term lender, has appointed Lyn McLaren (pictured) as head of underwriting.

McLaren joins from Rockstead Ltd, where she advised on short-term property finance portfolios for corporate clients, having built up over fifteen years of underwriting experience with Bank of Ireland and Bath & West Finance.

Damien Druce, commercial director at Black & White Bridging, said: “With Lyn’s arrival, our senior management team is now complete for the next phase of Black & White’s development.

“Lyn brings with her an immense knowledge of the bridging and development market and we and our introducers will benefit hugely from her experience and expertise.

“In addition to running the underwriting team and helping to streamline our processes, Lyn will also be working closely with Nicholas Goss, our head of investments & capital markets to tailor our proposition more closely to what potential funders are looking for in short-term lending businesses.”

Mclaren added: “I see this as a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the growth of Black & White Bridging.

“My skills are particularly well suited to the position based on my experience built up over many years in the lending industry.

“I am excited by this new position and look forward to helping Black & White become one of the pre-eminent lenders in this market.”
