Colin is set to depart after six years as CEO of Fortwell Capital, a position he has held since the lender’s inception in 2011.

Colin also played a key role in the establishment of Fortwell’s sister company Omni Capital Retail Finance, which was sold to Castle Trust in January.
As CEO, Colin also led the lender through its rebrand as it changed from Omni Capital Partners to Fortwell Capital and transitioned its offering into larger short-term finance, structured finance and development finance products.
In a statement, Fortwell said: “The Fortwell Capital board, led by executive director Dan Smith, wishes to extend its enormous gratitude to Colin for his leadership over the last six years and remains committed to continuing the company’s support to borrowers, developers and investors seeking success in UK real estate.”
