Bridging lender Hope Capital is on the verge of doubling its office space by moving to a new premises after increasing its headcount by 30% in 2017.
Hope Capital has made two appointments in the past month in Rachel Harkins as a BDM and Gemma Bancroft as a case manager.
Jonathan Sealey, chief executive officer of Hope Capital said: “2017 has been another exciting year of growth for us, and these two key appointments will be instrumental in the continued development of Hope Capital.
“We are very much a service-focused lender, so when recruiting we always look for individuals who really understand the need for quick turnaround times, as well as having an extensive knowledge of the market and strong, long-standing relationships.”
Harkins, who specialised in the funding proposals market for nearly five years, has taken on the role of business development manager for Wales and the South West, meaning she is responsible for developing new business in those regions.
Bancroft, who has been in the financial services for 14 years, will liaise with valuers and solicitors, as well as brokers and clients during the application process.
