Hope Capital hires BDM
He will be tasked with improving the Liverpool-based bridging lender’s quality and quantity of business from partners, brokers and introducers.
Before joining BFS in 2014 rose to a bank manager role at Lloyds Banking Group the year before. In 2006 he was an associate director at Superbridge Ltd.
Gammond said: “Joining a company that is keen to lend and has great products is a very exciting prospect for me.
“Since returning to the sector I have travelled the country and met some great brokers and clients. I am very much looking forward to my next challenge with Hope Capital; growing the business, building valuable relationships and helping many more peoples’ property dreams come true.”
Hope Capital announced its plans to recruit a new BDM and underwriter in June after enjoying significant growth in the first half of 2015 and also expanding into Scotland.
Jonathan Sealey, chief executive officer of Hope Capital, said: “When recruiting we were looking for someone with extensive knowledge of bridging loans and mortgages, but equally importantly someone with contacts who can build good, long-standing, relationships and that understands how important service is when it comes to short term lending.
“Paul’s appointment is crucial to the development of our business to ensure we can continue to help more people with the short term finance they need. Increasing deal flow is key to this and through his industry connections Paul is perfectly placed to help Hope Capital achieve its goals. With Paul on board we have the structure to continue to build on what has been a very exciting year.”
