New senior hire for Mersey property lender
Bridging Finance Solutions in Wirral has hired a former relationship director at HSBC to be its new head of business development
Specialist Merseyside property lender Bridging Finance Solutions (BFS) has appointed Lee Gilmore as its new head of business development.
A former relationship director at HSBC, Mr Gilmore has been working with BFS for several years in a consultant capacity, delivering coaching and mentoring whilst supporting the team in making informed investment decisions.
He will lead the regional teams from the BFS head office in Wirral and is looking to make a series of new appointments in the coming 12 months. He added: “This is a brilliant move for me. I’ve worked with BFS for a number of years and continue to be impressed by their refreshing and unique approach in a busy and challenging market.
“BFS has undoubtedly found its niche position within the short-term finance sector and it is these foundations that we’ll continue to build upon. We have a strong business development team already in place but will need to further strengthen resources if we are to grow in line with our strategy.”
Steve Barber, managing director of BFS, added: “This was a natural step for us and the appointment of Lee in this senior role is an incredibly positive and exciting move.
“He has some fantastic ideas around how we can begin to integrate his existing work within the business development, operational and finance areas of the business to improve and enhance wider performance.
“His existing knowledge of BFS will undoubtedly be a huge asset and will allow us to make the shift in role a seamless one.”
