Peer-to-peer lender, Assetz Capital, have announced that they have strengthened their Northern team by appointing Steve Grant as Relationship Director for both the North West and North East.
Steve has joined from United Trust Bank, where he spent two years as Business Development Manager for the North of England. Prior to this, Steve worked for Barclays Corporate Real Estate as a Senior Real Estate Manager in the North West of England and North Wales. In this role, Steve provided residential and commercial finance, as well as development finance to property businesses.
Steve also has 31 years’ experience in the finance space at HSBC, where he was responsible for deal origination and providing finance for clients in the North West and North East.
In his new role at Assetz Capital, Steve will work alongside Director and Head of Intermediary Sales Damien Druce as the pair look to expand Assetz Capital’s introducer network. Steve will also be responsible for dealing with finance requests and constructing facilities for clients.
Steve said: “Assetz Capital has a truly entrepreneurial approach to lending. The ability to think outside the box and provide unique forms of finance is the reason Assetz has such a strong reputation in the market, and as a result, the client base is growing at a rapid rate. I’m looking forward to working with Damien and the team as we continue to help ambitious companies in the North West and North East.”
Damien Druce, Director and Head of Intermediary Sales, said: “In a period of rapid growth for the company, it’s key that we continue to hire quality RDs to handle the growing influx of enquiries we receive. Steve’s experience in the property finance space speaks volumes about his ability, and we’re confident he will have a huge impact at Assetz Capital.”
